THE WIRE PAGE 1CALL US AT 941-206-1000SPORTS PAGE 1As immediate past chair of the Florida Press Association, I had the privilege last night of welcoming the audience to the gubernatorial debate between Charlie Crist and Rick Scott. I hope you watched the debate, which was supported by Leadership Florida and the Florida Press Association. The lead-up to the debate was not without controversy. Libertarian candidate Adrian Wyllie sued the Florida Press Association because the rules of the debate excluded Wyllie from the debate. He did not poll at least 15 percent, so he was not invited on stage. Our 15 percent threshold was easier to meet than the criteria being used by Telemundo and CNN in the other two televised debates. Not everyone thought our 15 percent polling threshold was fair. I am extremely disappointed in your publisher and newspapers. Your company has elected to support restricting information available to voters, rather than exercise your power as The Third Estate (ha). I am speaking of the decision by the FPA (which you support) to specically exclude Adrian Wyllie and other ballot candidates from the upcoming campaign debates. If a candidate has paid their state fee and is on the ballot, they deserve to be heard from in any supposedly impartial debate. But they are not impartial debates, since you have preselected who you want the winners to be. This is of course based upon how much money each campaign spends, including with your newspapers. You have become part of the problem. This disgusts me. Be assured I will no longer be reading your newspaper through subscription or at the newsstand. You have crossed the line from commercial ad-selling enterprise into an enemy of freedom. You do not deserve the protections guaranteed by millions of American deaths over the last 233 years. You should be ashamed to call yourselves news-people. BC The election season always brings on the passion of the public. In America, everyone has a vote and a voice. We did not pick Scott and Crist, but exclude Wyllie, from the debate because of the amount of money Scott and Crist spent with our newspaper. Only in my dreams, BC, have we gotten money from the Crist or Scott campaign for newspaper advertising. Your unfortunate willingness to make the leap in logic that we included Scott and Crist, but left out Wyllie, because of advertising money and are, therefore, an enemy of freedom is an excellent example of todays political discussion. We set the threshold at a candidate polling at least 15 percent because that was a reasonable proxy for how interested the public is in what a candidate might have to say. Last I knew, there were 10 people who had led to run for governor. It is unlikely Crist and Scott would have shown up to a carnival of debate with eight fringe candidates. Even if they were agreeable, do we really want to have 10 people, including eight with no chance of winning, on stage, sharing just an hour debate? Would that help enlighten the public about the two candidates they are likely to vote for? Several of our editors and publishers around Florida, including me, met Adrian Wyllie in person this summer. We each individually invited him to come visit us in person where we would give him a chance to express his views to the public through our paper. He never took us up on the offer.

In front of a crowd of teachers in red union shirts, the board voted 4-1 Tuesday night to approve the Charlotte Florida Education Associations contract for the 2014-15 school year. Board chairman Ian Vincent cast the dissenting vote. The contract includes raises retroactive to July 1 for teachers close to the top of the pay scale who did not receive an increase last year, as well as a pay increase for all other teachers that would be effective Jan. 1. Teachers receive pay increases on a step schedule based on years of experience, generally amounting to a few hundred dollars. The total value of the raises is $450,000, according to Mike Riley, school district spokesman. Im elated, said Renee Wiley, assistant CFEA president, who vowed to go back to the table and renegotiate the contract after the boards decision last month to delay raises. Still, the question is: Why in two weeks time did the School Board change its position? Superintendent Doug Whittaker said the district found room in the budget Teachers get raisesBy SOMMER BROKAWSTAFF WRITERCharlotte School Board reverses contract stanceTEACHERS | 6 Flickers of feathers SUN PHOTO BY CHRISTY FEINBERGTwo northern ickers, the yellow-shafted kind, were spotted recently in a Punta Gorda area tree.

According to a Charlotte County Clerk of the Court audit, the boat race organizers generated $313,939 in revenues but racked up $368,450 in expenses. All I can tell you right now is I am glad (the county) nally nished its audit, race promoter Jerry York said Wednesday. We are still set on our dates. No deposit has been made to secure the dates, but a second high-powered boat race in the Gulf off Englewood Beach is tentatively scheduled for April 12 or April 19, 2015, York said. Commissioners are expected to discuss the audit and the future of the boat race at their workshop, scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday in Room 106-B, Building B of Charlotte County Administration Center, 18500 Murdock Circle. County commissioners committed up to $250,000 as seed money for the rst two years of the high-performance boat race off Englewood Beach. Of the countys money, $180,000 was spent to stage the race in April. Subtracting the countys contribution, the race events generated $133,939 in sponsorships, tickets, T-shirt and other sales. The revenues generated by the event could not be substantiated by the audit since no supporting documentation was made available, the report Audit shows first boat race lost moneyBy STEVE REILLYSTAFF WRITERAUDIT | 6BRADENTON Charlotte County Commissioner Chris Constance called for the termination of Peace River Manasota Regional Water Supply Authoritys Executive Director Pat Lehman on Wednesday, claiming that Lehman constantly abused his authority and undermined the direction of the governing board. Constance said a cavernous abyss existed between Lehmans leadership and the desires of the board, which features other county commissioners from Sarasota, DeSoto and Manatee, and that Lehman, not the board itself, was making policy decisions. Constance blasted Lehman as part of Lehmans annual review of his job performance. He accused Lehman of actually being in control of the regions water supply, and purposely shutting out North Port and Punta Gorda from being voting members of the water authority. Constance also called Lehmans $100,000-plus annual salary bloated. This is a blatant case of the tail wagging the dog, Constance added. Lehman declined to comment on Constances statements, saying that he had only received Constances written comments just prior to the meeting and had not had time to review them.

Our Town Page 4 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, October 16, 2014 LOCAL/REGIONAL NEWS PUNTA GORDA The citys water woes run deep. After months and months of trying to convince, cajole, plead and otherwise beg ofcials from the Southwest Florida Water Management District, better known as Swiftmud, to fund Punta Gordas proposed reverse-osmosis watertreatment plant, city leaders are no closer to a resolution. Wednesday, City Council members signed off on a letter that essentially rejects a proposal made last week by the Peace River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority to sell water to the city and move ahead with the Phase 1 inter connect, in exchange for Swiftmud funding. Earlier this year, water district ofcials agreed to partially fund the testing phase for the RO plant a $28 million project city leaders say will improve the citys long-standing water-quality problems, while keeping down utility costs for city ratepay ers on the condition that Punta Gorda joins the water authority in its quest to build a $14 million regional pipeline. Under the authoritys proposal, the city would buy water from the authority for a period of seven years, with a price tag of roughly $12 million. City leaders say thats too expensive, and it still leaves Punta Gorda with poor-quality water. The RO plant option is more cost-effective, while also addressing other signicant environmental and long-term planning issues that the pipeline option does not, City Manager Howard Kunik said. If the council were to accept the authoritys proposal, it would be impossible to explain to ratepayers that the city has selected an option (that) is not the most cost-effective and does not solve the entire problem. Instead, the city proposes paying an amount equal to the portion paid by each of the four counties (Sarasota, Charlotte, DeSoto and Manatee) that make up the authoritys board, either in one lump sum or over a three-year period. If we are to make any kind of contribution to the Phase 1 Pipeline, I think it should be equal to what the other authority members are contributing, City Councilwoman Carolyn Freeland said. We should not be contributing more. Any contributions will be contingent, city leaders said, on Swiftmud releasing the money earmarked for the RO plants well eld testing. Were being cooper ative partners, Mayor Rachel Keesling said. Last year, the council decided to move ahead with the RO plant, and directed staff to apply for $14 million in Swiftmud funding, or half the total estimated project cost. But in June, Swiftmuds governing board rejected the citys application, saying it did not meet the districts multijurisdictional criteria. Instead, it tentatively agreed to fund a portion of the well eld testing, pending a deal for the construction of a pipeline that connects the authoritys watertreatment plant in DeSoto County to the citys Shell Creek plant. The now-infamous Phase 1 Pipeline a hot topic several years ago was abandoned by Charlotte County in 2006 because of nancial concerns. At that time, the project was estimated to cost $11 million; today, ofcials estimate it could cost up to $14 million.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgPunta Gordas water fight continuesBy BRENDA BARBOSASTAFF WRITER Humane Society thrift storesThe Suncoast Humane Societys thrift stores need donations of quality, sellable items.

Our Town Page 6 E/N/C www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, October 16, 2014 to accommodate the teachers raises. We have 150 additional students. Thats more than we were projected to have, not more than last year, but more than we budgeted for, he said. With that money coming in (the state pays the district per student), Im now comfortable that we have the money to approve the contract. Bryan Bouton, CFEA president, said the union had negotiated in good faith, and they had always known the money was there. The hardest part about what happened is we had to renegotiate everything, he said. Tempers ared at the September board meeting, with some teachers saying they felt like they had been slighted. Board members explained the reason for their denial of the contract was simply nancial. For example, the board has not made a de cision on raises for noninstructional workers. When this was brought to us (last month), we werent certain of the money and we wanted to make sure the money was there not only for you, but also the support people, and Im happy its there, said School Board member Alleen Miller. Board member Barbara Rendellagreed, saying she voted against the contract last time because purely nancially she didnt know if the district had the money. The idea that our teachers werent deserving of a raise was never an issue, she said. Vincent agreed that teachers were deserving of a raise. Still, he was the only one to vote against the contract for the same reason he voted against it at the previous meeting. He prefers the district restore some previously cut items that affected student achievement such as elementary Science, Technology, Engineering and Math programs and elementary guidance counselors before awarding raises.Email: email@example.comTEACHERSFROM PAGE 1 stated. All the revenue was lumped into the deposits. (The auditors) could only utilize the (or ganizers) check register and bank statements to determine what funds were deposited into (the race organization) account. The report recommended to commissioners the boat race organizers adopt scal internal controls and adherence to generally accepted accounting principals. Among the $54,000 in unpaid expenses, more than $36,000 is owed to the Charlotte County Sheriffs Ofce, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Englewood Area Fire Control District, Charlotte County Fire/ EMS and the Sarasota County Sheriffs Ofce. The auditor noted, according to Yorks calculations, the county is owed $5,374.43 in sales taxes. The audit shows $37,400 in salaries, at $25 an hour, and $23,208 for expenses for the four principal or ganizers York, Robert and Kristen Randolph, and Kent Kretzler. The audit identified $1,656.50 in questionable expenses. The audit shows Super Boat International racing association received $80,000 to stage the event and another $9,563 for their hotel expenses. A $10,000 deposit for the 2015 racing event should have been made, but hasnt, according to the audit. However, from a county tourism perspective and as an inaugural event the boat race itself proved a success for Charlotte County, the sponsors and the racing association, said Sean Doherty, marketing and sports events manager for the Charlotte Harbor Visitor & Convention Bureau. The rst event is always the hardest, Doherty said. Staging a second power boat race should generate more revenues and be more cost-effective to stage, he said. The Englewood Florida Chamber of Commerce sees benets in the return of the super boats. The chamber created a committee to stage festivities to augment the boat race. Chamber President Elaine Miller said the goal is to coordinate events that will increase support of Englewood business and the community. The Englewood community was mostly favorable to have a boat race off Manasota Key, Miller said. She supports having a second race. Chamber Executive Director Ed Hill said, If there was a way a race could be held with a charity or charities beneting from the event, held a different time of year and the Englewood community have owner ship in the event, I think it could be a tremendous event.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgAUDITFROM PAGE 1SUPER BOAT RACE AUDITCharlotte County posted the audit for the first Charlotte Harbor Super Boat Grand Prix online in the agenda for the County Commissions Oct.21 workshop. The audit can be found at www.charlottefl.com/ outreach/agenda/20141021/20141021Agenda.pdf. The rest of the water authority board spoke highly of Lehmans work, with Sarasota County Commissioner Nora Patterson saying, I think hes doing a decent job. Hes meeting expectation. In other news, Douglas Manson, the water authoritys legal counsel, said a dispute resolution could be reached on Oct. 29 when administrative staffs from the counties and the water authority, along with a mediator, meet to solve a formal conict led by Charlotte County in September. Charlotte County objected to being assigned 79 percent of the cost to rebuild a 1991 water processing and treatment facility, which was originally set to cost $12.8 million. The cost was reduced by $2 million with money from authority reserves, leaving the four counties, along with North Port, to split the bill. Sarasota was set to pay $1.2 million of that gure, while Charlotte was targeted for $8.5 million. DeSoto County was set to incur just over $213,000 in costs, while the city of North Port was set to incur just under $870,000. Charlotte challenged the way the nancial responsibility was assigned because ofcials felt it did not change the level of reserved water capacity for the county, and worried it would cause undue burden on its own water customers. That gure has changed now that the water authority has been awarded $1.5 million from the state, but the board was more concerned about getting the issue resolved and moving forward. If I was a Charlotte County resident, Id be asking a lot of questions myself, said DeSoto County Commissioner Elton Langford. Charlotte County is paying a lot of attorney fees for something thats pretty cut and dried ... Its time to lay this to bed and move on. Meanwhile, water authority staff said the rebuild would be completed by April of next year and plan on testing the new system in December, just prior to Christmas.

MURDOCK The Babcock Ranch Community took another step forward Wednesday, when $26.5 million in bonds were re-authorized to nance a water and wastewater system for its much-delayed city of tomorrow. At a meeting of the Charlotte County Industrial Development Authority, the board unanimously endorsed moving the bond allocation into next year because the three-year limit on issuing bonds is set to expire next month. There was little discussion prior to the vote and a public hearing was absent of citizen comments. The measure now goes to the Charlotte County Commission, which is expected to approve the re-authorization at its rst meeting in November. Robert Brannan, attorney for Town & Country Utility, said the current authorization to issue bonds to provide the community with water and wastewater service would expire in November, prompting the need to re-up. We are now approaching the beginning of the project, Brannan said. This is an important part of the project to provide nancing for a water and wastewater facility. Earlier this week, headway also was made when the Babcock Ranch Community reached a tentative agreement with Florida Power & Light to be the sole provider for power to the more than 19,000 homes to be built on roughly 18,000 acres of property next to the Babcock Ranch Preserve. This deal is expected to be nalized in the next few weeks. Tom Patton, Charlotte economic development director, said these advancements signal good news for the Babcock Ranch Community, one of many upcoming projects in the hopper. Congratulations to the Babcock Ranch Community on moving forward. Its going to be another one of the exciting projects we have, he said. We are about as busy in this ofce since I have been here by a quantum leap. County Commissioner Stephen R. Deutsch also said the huge, mixed-use development was the latest sign of a rebounding economy in Charlotte County. It was a vision created many years ago and its about to take off, along with a lot of other projects, Deutsch said. The energy-efcient, sustainable community for 50,000 residents, supplemented by large arrays of solar panels, would include 6 million square feet of ofce and retail space, along with hotels and a golf course. However, not much progress has been made on the project since 2006, when developer Syd Kitson bought the 91,000-acre Babcock Ranch wildlife preserve, then sold nearly 74,000 acres of this land to the state for $350 million.Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgBabcock Ranch corrals utility bond issueBy GARY ROBERTSSTAFF WRITERNEXT STEPThe Charlotte County Commission is scheduled to consider this issue at its first meeting in November.

CHARLOTTE COUNTY A local duo involved in four drug fraud cases were busted after a phar macist caught on to their scheme, according to a Charlotte County Sheriffs report. Deep Creek residents Darin Anthony Delia, 42, and Susie Leigh Mechesney, 44, were arrested Tuesday on four felony counts each of obtaining or attempting to obtain a controlled substance by fraud. They were caught after a pharmacist at the WinnDixie on Bermont Road, east Punta Gorda, called the Sheriffs Ofce Friday and said he was suspicious of a voice message left at the pharmacy earlier in the week. The female caller later identied as Mechesney claimed to be calling on behalf of a local doctor, saying she needed to request a prescription of 60 Vicodin pills for Delia, the report shows. She was able to provide all the appropriate information for a real prescription, but the pharmacist could not conrm the order when he called the doctors ofce back. The investigation shows the doctor for whom Mechesney claimed to work never had Delia as a patient, but the two suspects recently had pulled off the same scam. Using the same method, the two obtained some temazepam from the Publix on Peachland Boulevard in Port Charlotte, and they later had the prescription relled, reports show. They also allegedly defrauded the Kmart on Cochran Boulevard in Port Charlotte out of 77 Vicodin pills. Delia, of the 26300 block of Rampart Boulevard, and Mechesney, of the 1400 block of San Cristobal Avenue, were released from the Charlotte County Jail after posting $35,000 bond each, shortly after their arrests.

Gary Lee Strange Jr., 38, 21900 block of Cellini Ave., Port Charlotte. Charges: possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and delivery of a synthetic narcotic. Bond: $15,000. Isaiah Lamonte Tucker, 23, 2500 block of Luther Road, Deep Creek. Charge: violation of probation (original charge: possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana). Bond: none.

Compiled by Adam Kreger and Anne KlockenkemperReport: Fraud cases a prescription for arrest SARASOTA COUNTY Dates were announced Wednesday for the 2015 Modern Pentathlon First World Cup, with ofcials promising hundreds of international athletes and thousands of visitors to Sarasota and Manatee counties. Former U.S. Rep and Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris announced on the shores of Nathan Benderson Park that 40 nations will be represented in the upcoming world cup trials, set for Feb. 17-22, 2015, and it will be the start of a long road for the athletes, all of whom hope to make it to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics. People are talking about Sarasota and Bradenton around the world, Harris said. Were grateful (for) the amount of exposure this event has given our communities. Although the pentathlon made its debut at the Ancient Olympic Games in 708 B.C., the modern pentathlon was introduced in 1912, with its ve disciplines reecting the necessary skills of the 19th century militia: ghting off enemies (fencing and shooting), navigating a river (swimming), overcoming obstacles on an unfamiliar horse (show jumping), and traveling on foot (running), according to organizers. Sarasota County played host to the nal last year, which featured 35 men and 35 women who had fought through the gauntlet of three world cups to make it to the nal. The nal also is expected to return to Sarasota in 2016, but the rst world cup event will be spread out over locations including Benderson Park, the Selby Aquatic Center and the Ringling College of Art and Design. Flanked by members of the international pentathlon community, including Shiny Fang, secretary general of pentathlons governing body, Harris predicted millions of dollars of economic impact from the rst world cup trials. Fang praised the regions culture and its passion for the pentathlon, and hopes to have a long-lasting partnership with the communities. We feel that Sarasota is one of the most passionate communities weve ever met, Fang said. With the road to Rio set to start in Sarasota for Olympic pentathlon hopefuls, organizers are certain the rst world cup trials will have a lasting effect on not only the region, but on the world. Were expecting a geopolitical ripple effect, said Rob Stull, a threetime Olympian, champion fencer and director of USA Pentathlon.Email: email@example.comDate set for 2015 pentathlon world cupBy DREW WINCHESTERSTAFF WRITER Coast Guard Auxiliary needs volunteersThe U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary needs volunteers.

He changes his mind and party just to get votes and win. What does he really stand for?Annette Massey Port CharlotteEditor: On Sunday, our nine-month old English Pointer decided to run into the woods surrounding our home. We spent the day canvassing the streets of Crestwood and Morningside, home to horse and cattle farms, forests and deep ponds, but Deisel Marie had disappeared. We envisioned her in a wild boars trap or an alligators jaws. We waited to receive that phone call that she lay dead on busy Pine Street. Even though she only lived with us a few short months, proving to be an untrained, wild, gar bage-raiding, kitty-chasing, house rule-breaking pooch, she had managed to wrap herself around our hearts. We were devastated. At 8 a.m. Monday, we called our vet at the Englewood Animal Hospital, speaking with Sherry, who provided local service numbers and helped to erase some of our fears. Fifteen minutes later, Critter Cottage called, saying they had run the vets number on the rabies tag and found us. Within minutes we were reunited with our puppy. Thanks to Keith and Cheryl Rowley, who went the distance to hold her, trying to nd an animal shelter open on Sunday. Much thanks to Critter Cottage, who took her in even though they were closed for the day. Kudos to the Suncoast Animal Society and the Sarasota Animal Rescue for their quick response to our calls. In todays world, which often reects an uncaring attitude, its more than nice to know there are caring people such as yourselves.Leon Kowalski, Stefanie Mead EnglewoodEditor: As election day approaches, the specter of indifference will once again rise in the guise of the non-voter with too busy, no time, dont like any candidates or my vote wont make any difference excuses. If I had the authority, I would annul their citizenship and deport them to some Third World, despot-ruled country where the bother of casting a ballot would not exist because they wouldnt have one. Perhaps their dreams harbor the ghosts of the thousands upon thousands of this countries sons and daughters who have paid the ultimate price to ensure they have the privilege of exercising their indifference. For shame!John H. Brophy North PortEditor: Kevin Russell and Bill Bigelow presented persuasive arguments, pro and con, regarding the six-year extension of the 1 percent sales tax. I am voting no, but for a different and more compelling reason, which I hope residents will consider when deciding how to vote. Taxpayers must break the mold of continuous spending that governments at every level force upon us. If you are a carpenter, you cut, t and nail. If a plumber, you pipe, thread and seal. If a bureaucrat, you plan, regulate and expand. The more government, the more planning, regulating, expanding and demanding of funds for new purposes. Objectively, this causes an endless cycle of growth solely for the sake of growth. This is what we face with the 1 percent tax extension. And this is the perfect time to say stop. But there must be more than the vacuum created by a no vote. And that is to challenge our activist communities and elected ofcials, during this no-tax hiatus, to begin a transformation to streamline and reduce county and city government spending at the rate of 2 percent a year without negatively affecting any essential government activities. Editor: Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel is at it again. The need of security of our nation is greater than ever yet, the Secretary of Defense Hagel continues to reduce our troop strength to create a Hollow Army. At the same time he is playing the old Military Industrial Complex game; the so-called surpluses weapons and equipment are provided to the states police and other security agencies while he is requesting new funds from Congress to buy new equipment and weapons. Can anyone tell me why our Sheriffs Department needs ar mored personnel carriers? Why do the school security personnel in some places in this country need automatic assault ries? To me it is simply wasting our tax money. With the withdrawal of our military from the Middle East there will be much equipment available to maintain a ready military force without the need to purchase new military equipment. Why then is Mr. Hagel trying to purchase new military hardware? My question: Is there anyone in our state and federal government who can put a stop to this waste?Rudi Voigt Punta GordaEditor: It deeply warmed this tired old veterans heart when I read the article, Write a letter to a veteran, in the Oct. 10, Sun The new Charlotte County L.O.V.E. (Love Our Veterans Endlessly) Project encourages all county residents to write a letter to members of our military, both active and those who have served. They suggest that these letters express thanks for their service and recognize the many sacrices they make and/or have made. Letters are to be dropped off at any of the ve branches of Charlotte State Bank and Trust Oct. 13-31. These letters will be included in a card and distributed to Charlotte County veterans and active military for Veterans Day, Nov. 11. In this day and age of leading-edge technology, with e-cards sent for birthday, holiday, thank you and the like, a personal letter, especially if handwritten, sends a very powerful message that, I assure you, will be gratefully received and appreciated.Don Nemetz Port CharlotteEditor: Recently, my air-conditioning compressor went out. My landlord, who lives in Ohio, and the fact that Ive lived in my condo for 17 years, problems began. My landlord went with a local company to the tune of $1,500. The serviceman said the compressor would not be in for two days. Well, two days came and went with no telephone calls from this company. First, they would only speak to my landlord, who wanted me to handle the situation after he paid them. Every call I made inquiring when they were going to x it, was met with rudeness. Well, its Friday, and its nally xed. However, on my last call the girl answering the telephone forgot to put me on hold and she said (I quote), Will someone talk to this lady.?Im sick of dealing with her. So I say, pick and choose when you are paying. Good customer service did not matter to this company. They did not even call me to ensure that everything went well.Robin Gelotti Port CharlotteEditor: Just wanted to give recognition to Waste Management for a job well done. My neighbor (a snowbird) had his freezer break down last week. As caregiver of his home while he is away, I discovered the disaster. I had to empty the full-size freezer that was packed to capacity with food. I had almost two garbage cans full of very smelly rotten food. Knowing the smell would permeate the neighborhood and attract ies, animals, etc., I called Waste Management and asked if they could make a special, unscheduled pick-up. Sure enough, less than 24 hours later they had a truck Editor: I read that some of the proceeds from the proposed 1-cent tax would include the expansion of Piper Road to the intersection of Route 17 (Duncan Road) and Regent. This would be great. The recent announcement of the PG airport expansion will result in more trafc. The trafc from the north would gain a more direct route to the airport and reduce the trafc on Florida Street and Golf Course Road, which have school zones and residential speed zones. The opening of Piper Road would also result in a quick access to the south side of PG for motorists going to U.S. 41, Burnt Store Road, Taylor Road, etc. I say vote yes to the tax.Jerry Fisher Punta GordaGay marriage up to Floridas high court nowOUR POSITION: Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi had no real choice but to relent and allow the state Supreme Court to rule whether the states ban on gay marriage will stand.It is being called startling and unexpected by the media and proponents of gay mar riage. In reality, however, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is catching the only life raft left as she agreed Monday to allow the state Supreme Court to rule on the states ban on gay marriage. Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott have fought two appeals court rulings that Floridas 2008 ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional. After losing in the state appeals courts, Bondi took the issue to Miamis Third District Court of Appeal where the cases seeking gay mar riage were consolidated. Lawyers in favor of gay marriage asked that the states high court rule as soon as possible, but Bondi requested that be put on hold. She wanted the U.S. Supreme Court to make the call. Well, last week the Supreme Court declined to take up the issue. The justices tossed the hot potato back to each state to decide essentially approving gay marriage in 30 states where it is already legal. The U.S. Supreme Court was considering the gay marriage issue in ve states Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia, Wisconsin and Indiana. But, in a disappointment to opponents of gay marriage, the nations top court refused to rule. That left states that were still on the fence like Florida to make their own decision or spend millions of dollars battling the issue with the hope the U.S. Supreme Court would change its mind down the road. The writing was all over the wall, however. Since the Supreme Court ruling, same-sex couples have been married in North Carolina, Idaho and Alaska. Florida is one of the last hold-outs. Bondi, who is up for reelection this November, backed off her tough stance this week. She said that, after the U.S. Supreme Court passed on any ruling, Floridas courts will therefore need to resolve the issue without further United States Supreme C ourt guidance. Because there are cases pending in multiple districts, and because this is an issue of great public importance that now warrants immediate Florida Supreme Court review, the State respectfully suggests pass-through certication. In a Miami Herald article, local attorney Elizabeth Schwartz, who represents same-sex couples petitioning to get married, said Bondis announcement was unexpected and that she was hopeful that this will result in speedier unions for Floridas same-sex couples. The fact that Bondi agreed that the issue needs to be addressed once and for all and quickly is encouraging. No matter what side of the gay marriage issue you are on, the costly legal battles and the constant sound bites and publicity surrounding the issues have garnered attention for too long. A majority of Americans now live in states where gay marriage is legal. Like it or not, gay mar riage is a mantra of this generation and it is an idea that has won wide acceptance nationwide. Florida undoubtedly will eventually join the ranks of other states where gay marriage is legal. It will be a battle won for proponents and a bitter pill to swallow for opponents. In 10 years, however, Bondi and Scotts opposition will be likely forgotten and new issues will grab our attention. And same-sex couples in Florida will enjoy the same freedoms and benets as their counterparts in every other state. This transformation must start by rst looking inward at what is expendable before we sign up for more of that which is expandable. A no vote on Nov. 4 will start that process and give our heavily-taxed residents a modicum of relief that has been a long time in coming.Bob Strayton Punta Gordahere to remove the waste. I want to thank them and give them recognition for their quick response and a job well done. Thank you, Waste Management.Florence Gudmundsen Port Charlotte
The Sun /Thursday, October 16, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net E/N/C Our Town Page 11 VIEWPOINT Wretched excess by government can be benecial if it startles people into wholesome disgust and deepened distrust, and prompts judicial rebukes that enlarge freedom. So lets hope the Federal Communications Commission embraces the formal petition inciting it to deny licenses to broadcasters who use the word Redskins when reporting on the Washington Redskins. Using the FCC to break another private institution to the states saddle for the satisfaction of a clamorous faction illustrates how the governments many tentacles give it many means of intimidating people who offend it. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Ofce, empowered to ban trademarks that may disparage persons, has already limited trademark protection of the Redskins name. The FCC petition argues that broadcasting during prime time of the word Redskins has an adverse impact on impressionable young Indian as well as non-Indian children. (Todays sensitivity arbiters say the word Indian does, too, but never mind.) Furthermore, uttering Redskins is akin to broadcasting obscenity and pornography, is hate speech and an ethnic slur that keep[s] alive the spirit of inhumanity, subjugation and genocide and may cause violence against Native Americans. Besides, it is a nuisance, dened as something annoying. Is the FCC empowered to protect an entitlement to a life without annoyances? What if the FCC is annoying? This is complicated. Professor Eugene Volokh, who specializes in First Amendment law at UCLAs School of Law and supervises an invalu able website, The Volokh Conspiracy, thinks the petition refutes itself. It argues that Redskins is offensive because of the ideas and attitudes the word conveys. But when the Supreme Court upheld restrictions on the broadcasting of certain vulgarities (George Carlins seven dirty words), it stressed that the mere fact that speech is offensive is not a sufcient reason for suppressing it. And although the court focused on the content of the words, it did not focus on the political content or on the speakers opinion. Indeed, Volokh says, if it is the speakers opinion that gives offense, that consequence is a reason for according [an utterance] constitutional protection, because the government must remain neutral in the marketplace of ideas. Volokh adds: The premise of the criticism of Redskins is precisely that it embodies a racist, demeaning message about American Indians (whether or not this is intended by those who use it), and that it offends because of this racist meaning. It thus is the speakers imputed opinion and supposed political content of the word that gives offense. Some say Redskins is merely an offensive epithet with a negligible ideological message. Volokh replies that the epithet is offensive to those who are offended because of its allegedly racist ideology, and the call to suppress it stems precisely from the perception that it conveys this racist ideology. Anyway, the anti-Redskins petition is less legal reasoning than a form of bureaucratic bullying known as regulation by raised eyebrow. The petitions author notes that the FCC sometimes indicates disapproval of this or that, thereby compelling broadcasters, worried about being put out of business, to practice self-censorship. So the petition seems designed to trigger this, thereby succeeding even if it fails even if the FCC dismisses the petition. If, however, the FCC under progressives today but conservatives tomorrow, can, in the petitions words, dene and ban particular words as nuisances because they annoy a substantial composite of the population, what other words will appear on an ever-lengthening list? Today many colleges and universities have free speech zones wee spaces to which the First Amendment is conned. Such institutions are run by educators whose meager educations did not teach them that the Amendment made America a free speech zone. Campuses are habitats for progressives, and the distilled essence of todays progressivism is the use of power to limit speech. The fact that censorship is progressivisms default position regarding so many things is evidence of progressives pessimism about the ability of their agenda to advance under a regime of robust discussion. It also indicates the delight progressives derive from bossing people around and imposing a particular sensibility, in the name of diversity, of course. The petition, which uses R*dskins (this typographical delicacy supposedly will help prevent pogroms against Native Americans), says the phrase colored people, too, is now considered derogatory. If so, some progressive has the awkward duty of notifying the NAACP that its name is akin to a disparagement, an obscenity, pornography, a racial slur and hate speech.

A frequent complaint that I hear, in addition to the relentless onslaught of TV ads, is that voters dont know enough about the constitutional amendments on Floridas ballot. Let me try to help. There are three constitutional amendments on the Nov. 4 ballot. Amendments 1 and 2 were placed on the ballot through citizen initiative. As I have covered in my past two columns, I believe both are worthy of a yes vote. Amendment 3 is a different story. Placed on the ballot by the Florida Legislature, the measure has generated little discussion about its intent and application. Its ying under the radar and perhaps those supporting the amendment are hoping that voters bubbling in yes on the rst two might just continue to do so on Amendment 3. Let me join the chorus of almost every newspaper editorial board in Florida urging you not to do so. The amendment title is fairly simple and straightforward, but voters are probably scratching their heads and saying, why is this necessary? The title is Prospective Appointment of Certain Judicial Vacancies. The judicial vacancies that would be affected are the Florida Supreme Court justices and the District Courts of Appeal judges. Prospective appointments mean the outgoing governor would make the appointments rather than the incoming governor. Thats right, whether term-limited, choosing not to run for re-election or defeated in the election, the outgoing governor would have the authority to shape the highest courts in the state if this amendment were to pass. Instinctively it feels wrong and it is. When voters elect, or hire, their new governor, they expect to hold him or her accountable for their actions, including appointments to important positions in the administrative and judicial branches of government. One could reasonably argue that Supreme Court appointments are among the most signicant decisions a governor makes. State Sen. Tom Lee seems to be the lone voice speaking out in favor of the amendment, citing a potential constitutional crisis. He correctly states that the Legislature voted to put the amendment on the ballot. What he fails to mention is that it was a divisive issue that barely passed along party lines. What spurred this concern? Under current law, Supreme Court justices are required to retire at age 70, but can remain on the bench until the end of their six-year term. In 2019, three of the current Supreme Court justices will be forced to retire. The next gubernatorial election takes place in November 2018. The winning candidate will be sworn into ofce in January 2019 on the same day the outgoing governor departs. At the heart of the matter is who should appoint their replacements. Those opposing the amendment fear it is an attempt by one party to pack the court with ideological purists. Amendment 3 is a partisan solution in search of a problem. In fact, if passed, it likely would cause a problem where one does not presently exist. While legislative and governor races are expected to be highly partisan, with candidates running from a declared party, voters correctly expect the judicial branch to be nonpartisan. Justice for all requires justice to be blind. Regardless of who is governor or which party holds the ofce, the incoming governor should have the responsibility of judicial appointments and should be held accountable for his or her choices. How can you hold someone accountable who has left ofce? Over the years the Legislature has tweaked the nominating process allowing partisanship to creep into the appointment process but the major changes require amending the Constitution. The voters have a say. The Legislatures recent attempts at judicial changes through the Constitution have not met with great success. In 2012, Amendment 5 relating to state courts received a paltry 37 per cent of the vote far short of the 60 percent needed. Voters sent a clear message to the Legislature not to meddle with the judiciary, a separate but equal branch of state government. This year the Legislature is proposing Amendment 3; an unnecessary and divisive move that looks like a par tisan power grab intended to stack the court. Lets hope it meets the same fate.

Rick Scott and Democrat Charlie Crist fought over everything from self-defense laws and the economy to one of the candidates use of an electric fan during a debate Wednesday night. The start of the second debate was delayed by about five minutes as confused panelists pointed out that neither candidate was on stage. At that moment, Crist walked out and the audience was told Scott was refusing to join him because Crist had a small fan inside his lectern. The panelists spent a few minutes deciding what to do, with Crist insisting the debate go on without Scott. The governor eventually walked on stage, and Crist kept his fan. With that flap over, the candidates continued the attacks on each other that have marked the campaign. There is little common ground between Scott and Crist, which Crist noted after both men talked about their faith in God. Im happy to be a Methodist, too. Maybe its the only thing we agree on, Rick, said Crist, who preceded Scott as governor before he switched parties from Republican to Democrat.

The Commerce Department said Wednesday that seasonally adjusted retail sales dropped 0.3 percent from the previous month. Sales have risen 4.3 percent in the past 12 months, slightly below their historical pace. Auto sales fell 0.8 percent in September, after revving up 10.4 percent in August. Dealers sold cars and trucks at an annual pace of 16.43 million vehicles last month, down from a rate of 17.5 million in August, according to automakers. While auto sales have helped drive economic growth for much of the year, the recent slip was enough to dent overall retail sales in September. Falling gasoline prices also contributed to a decline in retail sales, as purchases at ser vice stations were off 0.8 percent in September. Drivers are spending much less at the pump, as average U.S. prices have dropped to $3.19 a gallon from $3.40 a month ago, according to the AAA. That should eventually free up income for consumers to spend elsewhere. Purchases of clothing dropped 1.2 percent last month and spending on building materials fell 1.1 percent.

The naming process, which took weeks of quiet deliberation behind closed doors at U.S. Central Command and at the Pentagon, is part of a package of administrative moves under way to organize a long-term military campaign. But that name, Inherent Resolve. It sounds, well, inherently bland.

One plan Reimagining Cornell reduced administration costs by $70 million and eliminated $120 million from the recurring decit by dissolving smaller programs, such as dance and theater, to concentrate faculty and funding on more strategically important majors. During his rst 100 days, Fuchs said he plans to learn as much about UF as possible by forming relationships with students, faculty, alumni and elected ofcials. Its important that the president not be aloof, he said. The president is the one who sets the tone for the university.

(AP) A gourd weighing 2,058 pounds took first prize and set a new tournament record Monday at an annual pumpkin-weighing contest in Northern California. John Hawkley, 56, won this years Safeway World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-off in Half Moon Bay south of San Francisco. Hawkley squashed his competition, beating the runner-up by more than 300 pounds, Tim Beeman, a spokesman for the weigh-off said. Hawkley a produc tion manager for a local newspaper credited his success at least in part to warm weather. He ended up with a total of six pumpkins on a 4,500-squarefoot patch of land in his front yard in Californias Napa Valley, which is famous for its wine grapes. One of the other pumpkins also weighed more than 2,000 pounds. My wife said this is as much pumpkin patch area as Im going to get, he said.ODD NEWS 2,058-pound gourd sets record Inherent Resolve is intended to reect the unwavering resolve and deep commitment of the U.S. and partner nations in the region and around the globe to eliminate the terrorist group ISIL and the threat they pose to Iraq, the region and the wider international community, it said, using a common acronym for the Islamic State group. Military operations are routinely given ofcial names, in part for administrative reasons. But they are meant also to bolster public support and international credibility. The U.S.-led effort to protect Kurds who ed their homes in northern Iraq in the aftermath of the 1991 Gulf War, for example, was called Operation Provide Comfort. A U.S. military disaster relief mission in Bangladesh that same year was Operation Sea Angel. The U.S. militarys effort against Ebola in West Africa is called Operation United Assistance. The name for the U.S. role in an international air campaign in Libya in 2011 was Odyssey Dawn. The naming of the current air campaign in Iraq and Syria comes as Obama and his military advisers wrestle with directing a coalition of partner nations toward a common goal: destroying the Islamic State group. It has been slow going thus far, with ofcials cautioning that it could drag on for months or years. The U.S. has more than 1,400 military personnel in Iraq, mostly in Baghdad, but Obama has ruled out sending combat troops. The U.S. says it has no troops in Syria. The U.S. has a long and difcult history of military involvement in Iraq, beginning with the George H.W. Bush administrations initial response to Iraqi President Saddam Husseins invasion of Kuwait in August 1990. That effort was dubbed Operation Desert Shield to deter Saddam from invading Saudi Arabia; in early 1991 that transitioned to a U.S.-led air and ground campaign, Operation Desert Storm, which successfully expelled Iraqi troops from Kuwait but left Saddam in power in Baghdad. In December 1998, in response to Saddams refusal to comply with U.N. weapons inspectors, President Bill Clinton launched Operation Desert Fox four days of air strikes against weapons installations and command headquarters in Baghdad. Promising to shock and awe Saddams forces, President George W. Bush launched Operation Iraqi Freedom in March 2003, an air-and-ground campaign that quickly toppled Saddams regime but opened the door to a homegrown Sunni insurgency that turned the war into an eightyear struggle.RESOLVEFROM PAGE 1 Economics.

Given the record number of iPhone pre-orders in the month, it is a pretty safe bet that those devices were responsible for most of the gain, said Jennifer Lee, a senior economist at BMO Capital Markets. Excluding autos, retail sales still dipped 0.2 percent last month. Increased consumer spending could help buffer the U.S. economy from the consequences of a broader global slowdown. Roughly 70 percent of all U.S. economic activity is driven by consumer spending. The German government on Tuesday downgraded its economic growth projections, while much of Europe copes with high unemployment and diminished prospects. Chinas propulsive growth has started to fade, and consumers in Japan are still spending cautiously after a big sales tax increase. Last week, the International Monetary Fund trimmed its global growth forecasts for this year and next, citing weakness in Japan, Latin America and Europe. In the U.S., future gains in retail spending will likely hinge on job growth. Employers added 248,000 jobs last month, according to the Labor Department. Job growth has averaged 227,000 a month through the rst nine months of 2014. Each new job increases the number of paychecks in the economy. Still, wage gains have been sluggish since the recession ended in 2009, and thats led many people to be more cautious about spending money. Average hourly pay fell a penny to $24.53 in September. Thats an increase of less than 2 percent over the past year, meaning pay is barely matching ination.SALESFROM PAGE 1 Zimmerman was acquitted of murder for fatally shooting unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin last year, Crist used the opportunity to suggest amending the stand your ground law, which allows use of deadly force if people are in fear for their lives. Everyone believes in that American premise and it is the right thing to do to defend yourself and your property, Crist said. But when it gets to the point where you have a statute on the books that allows the instigator ... to end up killing another human being after they started the incident, there is something fundamentally wrong with that law. Scott said Martins death was tragic, but the law should remain as is. I believe in the right to defend yourself. I cant imagine losing a child like that but I have talked to sheriffs and police chiefs, Scott said. I stand with them that we need to have the existing law in place. As he has done throughout the campaign, Scott blamed Crist for rising unemployment during the recession and took credit for lower unemployment during the recovery. Charlie is the zero-wage governor: 832,000 people went from wages to zero wages when Charlie was governor, Scott said. Crist quickly shot back. Rick, there you go again, trying to blame the global economic meltdown on me. It is unbelievable that he would continue to say that, but he says it. And he also says he created all these new jobs all by himself, said Crist. You just cant trust Rick. And its sad. Its unfortunate. Scott also tried to blame Crist for a law that allowed Duke Energy to collect money from customers for a nuclear power plant on Floridas Gulf Coast that will never be built. Thats not true. That was Jeb Bush, Crist said to audience applause. Bush signed the bill in 2006 that Scott referred to, but Crist signed a separate bill amending the law to add language that also allowed power plants to charge customers for the cost to run transmission lines from nuclear power plants. Scott was asked if Floridas constitutional ban on gay marriage was discriminatory, but he refused to directly answer the question, even when asked a second time. He did say he supports traditional marriage. Crist said he supports gay marriage. Who is it for us to tell other people who to love and what is it in our right to tell other people who to marry? Crist said. Scott then pointed out Crist supported the gay marriage ban when it passed in 2008. We dont know what Charlie believes on this issue because hes taken every side on this issue, Scott said.DEBATEFROM PAGE 1 AP PHOTODemocratic challenger, former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist, left, and Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott, answer questions during their second debate, Wednesday in Davie, Fla. It was sponsored by the Florida Press Association and Leadership Florida. nurse did not report having a fever until Tuesday, the day after she returned home, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said she should not have boarded a commercial ight. The nurse also knew before heading home that another nurse, Nina Pham, had been diagnosed with Ebola, and she had a slightly elevated temperature 99.5 degrees, according to government ofcials. While in Cleveland, she was contacted by health ofcials and told that her health would need to be more closely monitored for Ebola, the CDC said. It was unclear whether she was ordered not to y. From now on, CDC Director Tom Frieden said, no one else involved in Duncans care will be allowed to travel other than in a controlled environment. He cited guidelines that permit charter ights or travel by car but no public transportation. Ebola patients are not considered contagious until they have symptoms. Frieden said it was unlikely that others on the plane were at risk because the nurse was not vomiting or bleeding. Even so, the CDC is alerting the 132 passengers who were aboard Frontier Airlines Flight 1143 from Cleveland to Dallas-Fort Worth on Monday because of the proximity in time between the evening ight and rst report of illness the following morning. Ofcials are asking passengers to call the health agency so they can be monitored. The woman ew from Dallas to Cleveland on Oct. 10. Kent State said it was asking the workers related to Vinson to stay off campus for 21 days out of an abundance of caution. The nurse reported a fever Tuesday and was in isolation within 90 minutes, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said. The Ebola diagnosis was conrmed Wednesday. We are looking at every element of our personal protection equipment and infection control in the hospital, said Dr. Daniel Varga, chief clinical ofcer for Texas Health Resources, which operates Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. In Washington, the White House said Obamas trip to New Jersey and Connecticut would be postponed to a later date. The president was to meet with top ofcials who are coordinating the governments response to Ebola. His decision to nix the trip just a few hours before Air Force One was scheduled to depart reected escalating concerns about the disease. The second nurse was to be transferred to a special bio-containment unit at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, where other Ebola patients have been treated successfully, Frieden said. Pham will be monitored in Dallas to deter mine the best place for her care, Frieden said. The CDC has acknowledged that the government was not aggressive enough in managing Ebola and containing the virus as it spread from an infected patient to a nurse at a Dallas hospital. The second case may help health ofcials determine where the infection-control breach is occurring and make practices safer for health workers everywhere. For example, if both health workers were involved in drawing Duncans blood, placing an intravenous line or suctioning mucus when Duncan was on a breathing machine, that would be recognized as a particularly high-risk activity.EBOLAFROM PAGE 1 NEW YORK (Bloomberg) The Ebola virus circulating in West Africa is already different from previous strains. While scientists dont fully understand what the changes mean, some are concerned that alterations in the virus that occur as that pathogen continues to evolve could pose new dangers. Researchers have identied more than 300 new viral mutations in the latest strain of Ebola, according to research published in the journal Science last month. They are rushing to investigate if this strain of the disease produces higher virus levels which could increase its infectiousness. So far, there is no scientic data to indicate that. The risk, though, is that the longer the epidemic continues, the greater the chance that the virus could change in a way that makes it more transmissible between humans, making it harder to stop, said Charles Chiu, an infectious disease physician who studies Ebola at the University of California at San Francisco. If the outbreak continues for a prolonged period of time or it becomes endemic, it may mutate into a form that is more virulent, said Chiu. It is really hard to predict. Viruses such as Ebola, whose genomes are made from ribonucleic acid, are constantly mutating. Some mutations are good for the virus and some are bad for the virus, said Ian Mackay, a virologist at the University of Queensland. Its the ones that are good for the virus that tend to stick around. Viruses dont think. They make mutations that are good for them, he said. If it helps the virus spread or replicate faster it will be around more. It is a numbers game, the more cases you have the more likely there are going to be mutations that could change the virus in a signicant way, said David Sanders, a professor of biological sciences at Purdue University who studies Ebola. The more it persists, the more likely we are going to be thrown a curve. So far, the patterns of transmission are consistent with the previous Ebola epidemic, Chiu and several other researchers said. Ebola virus spreads through direct contact with bodily uids, such as vomit or diarrhea. Patients are most infectious at the late stages of the disease when large quantities of the virus are present inside the body. This explains why health care workers and family members tending to gravely ill patients are particularly at risk of getting infected.Long Ebola outbreak boosts odds of mutation

And because the time between dinner and the next mornings meal is the longest your body goes without food, breakfast has an effect on you thats different from any other meal. Eating within two hours of waking can make a difference in the way you metabolize glucose, or blood sugar, all day. Your glucose level rises every time you eat, and your pancreas produces insulin to shuttle the glucose into your cells, where its used for energy. Research is nding that keeping glucose and insulin in the right balance has important effects on metabolism and health. Consumer Reports provides ve good reasons to eat in the morning: 1. It may protect your heart. In a recent study that involved almost 27,000 men, researchers found that those who didnt eat a morning meal were 27 percent more likely to develop heart disease than those who did. Our research indicates that people who skip breakfast gain weight, which can lead to diabetes as well as high cholesterol and blood pressure all of which can raise your risk of heart disease, notes Dr. Eric Rimm, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. The reason isnt entirely known, but he says that breakfast skippers tend to overeat at other meals and snack excessively throughout the day. 2. It might lower your risk of Type 2 diabetes. A morning meal may help you avoid fluctuating glucose levels, which can lead to diabetes. A study of almost 30,000 men found that not eating breakfast raised the risk by 21 percent, even after taking into account their body mass, what they ate and other factors. In a study of women, those under age 65 who skipped breakfast even just a few times per week were 28 percent more likely to develop diabetes than women who ate it regularly. And if youre in the habit of dashing out in the morning with only a cup of coffee, Consumer Reports suggests taking note: Women in the study who worked full time had a greater risk than those who worked part time, researchers noted, possibly because job stress has been found to raise glucose levels. 3. It gets you moving. In a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN), people who ate breakfast were more physically active during the morning than those who didnt. That might be because a temporary increase in blood sugar gave them more energy. Its interesting to note that those who ate a morning meal consumed more calories over the course of the day than the breakfast skippers but they didnt gain weight because they were more active. 4. It might give you a mental edge. Research involving adults and children has indicated that breakfast might enhance memory, attention, the speed of processing information, reasoning, creativity, learning and verbal abilities. Scientists at the University of Milan in Italy reviewed 15 studies and found some evidence that those benets might be a function of the stable glucose levels that a morning meal provides. 5. It just might keep your weight down. Although more than 100 studies have linked eating breakfast with a reduced risk of obesity, researchers point out that those studies are merely observational and thus dont prove that the meal keeps you from gaining weight. More solid evidence comes from randomized controlled trials. One such study, published in the journal Obesity, found that overweight people who were dieting and ate more calories for breakfast than dinner lost more weight compared with subjects who ate larger evening meals. But other trials have been inconclusive. A study published in AJCN found that eating or skipping breakfast had no effect on weight loss, although it may have been too small to be meaningful.Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day NEW YORK (AP) Fear drove Wall Street to one of its most dramatic, nauseating days in years on Wednesday. Investors ed stocks and poured into bonds as worries about a global economic slowdown intensied. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 460 points in afternoon trading, all three U.S. stock indexes were in negative territory for the year, and the so-called fear index spiked. A late recovery limited the damage and left stocks mostly lower. But investors were shaken after the heaviest day of trading in more than three years. I think its fair to call it a global growth scare right now, said Bill Stone, chief investment strategist at PNC Asset Management. Investor concerns of a worldwide economic slowdown turned into outright fear after weeks of turbulence. Germany, Europes biggest economy is struggling. Greece, a key actor in Europe debt crisis three years ago, could see its government collapse next year, putting a crucial bailout program in danger. A batch of wor risome economic news in the U.S. also fueled the selling. Traders sold riskier investments and moved money into U.S. government bonds, gold and cash. By the end of the day, the Dow Jones industrial average lost 173.45 points, or 1 percent, to 16,141.74. The Standard & Poors 500 index lost 15.21 points, or 0.8 percent, to 1,862.49 and the Nasdaq composite dropped 11.85 points, or 0.3 percent, to 4,215.32 The yield on the benchmark U.S. 10-year note fell from 2.20 percent to below 1.91 percent. By the end of the day, it pulled back to a yield of 2.14 percent. The yield on bonds moves in the opposite direction of prices.Wall Street gets a licking | BUSINESSAs stock market drops, mortgage rates fall, too(LA Times) If theres an upside to a plunging stock market, its that mortgage rates are falling too. Investors bailing out on stocks have piled into U.S. Treasury bonds, pushing down the governments longterm borrowing costs on Wednesday to the lowest since June 2013 about 2.1 percent annual interest on the 10-year Treasury note. That yield was more than 2.5 percent at the end of September. That means xed mortgage rates, which tend to track the long-term Treasury yield, also are trending down. And that could perk up the lethar gic real-estate industry. First-time homebuyers and those with less-thanperfect credit histories still struggle to qualify for loans, a byproduct of the mortgage meltdown. But the lowest-risk buyers and renancers have been enjoying loans at 4 percent or less in recent months. Thats a surprise during a period when the Federal Reserve has been winding down its program aimed at lowering long-term rates. Mortgage broker Roger Kumar delivered good news this week to a renancer with plenty of home equity: a 30-year loan at a xed rate of 3.875 percent with almost no fees.Walmarts new GoBank has bankers on edge(Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) Walmart is rolling out a new checking account product, and bankers arent happy about it. Some bankers see the launch of GoBank a smartphone-friendly checking account with Californias Green Dot Bank that is expected to be available through Walmart stores by the end of October as another attempt by Walmart to encroach on their turf. Walmart has been trying for years to get into the banking industry and to be a bank, said Rose Oswald Poels, chief executive of the Wisconsin Bankers Association. And I think their partner ship with Green Dot is another way of sort of doing an end run around the banking industry, from a per ception standpoint. The Independent Community Bankers of America, a trade group that represents smaller banks around the country, is calling on regulators to scrutinize the new checking accounts the way it does those of traditional local banks.

Governments face calls from frightened citizens to bar travel to and from aficted nations. Meanwhile, the stakes get higher as more people get sick, highlighting a tricky balance between protecting people and preserving their rights in a global crisis. The world could impose more restrictions to ward off a disease that has overwhelmed several West African countries, and exposed shortcomings in medical procedures in Texas and also Spain, where Ebola cases have been diagnosed. Such measures can be legal, lawyers say, but the challenge is to ensure that quarantines, curbs on movement and other steps do not intrude too heavily on civil liberties. People would rather do more than less, and the problem is that it becomes a slippery slope in terms of rights, said Paul Millus, a New York lawyer who handles civil rights and employment issues. Already, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia, where the Ebola outbreak has killed thousands, are trying to implement severe controls. Authorities have imposed curfews, lockdowns and roadblocks. They have ordered a stop to traditional funeral rites that involve touching relatives bodies. An entire battalion of troops in Sierra Leone is in quarantine, waiting to deploy on a regional mission to conict-torn Somalia. In the United States, a second Texas health care worker has tested positive for the disease. Last week, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy of Connecticut signed an order giving the states public health commissioner the ability to quarantine anyone believed to have been exposed to the Ebola virus. John Thomas, a professor at the Quinnipiac University School of Law in Connecticut, said the world will be dealing more and more with the possible conict between health policies and civil liberties. The tension here is how broadly to cast this protective net, he said. Thomas cited the positive model of relatively effective quarantines during the u pandemic that killed millions in the early 20th century, and, on the other hand, quarantines imposed for no reason whatsoever on people in the early days of the AIDS crisis. The World Health Organization says West Africa could see up to 10,000 new Ebola cases a week within two months, dramatically up from the 9,000 cases reported so far, about half of whom have died. Doctors there are confronting ethical dilemmas on a daily basis. Juli Switala, a South African pediatrician with Doctors Without Borders, said her team chose not to help some sick babies who were not newborn out of fear that staff may be infected by bodily uids. The groups clinic in the town of Bo in Sierra Leone similarly decided to turn away pregnant women because childbirth poses a greater threat of infection. Its very difcult to be the gynecologist who is making the decision to do a Caesarean section where there is going to be a lot of blood and a lot of body uids, and you are putting your staff and team at risk if you do this, Switala said. She noted a curfew that bars people from riding a motorbike, a common form of transport, after 7 p.m., meaning women who go into labor after that time have no way to reach a clinic. Additionally, people worry about running into police checkpoints because they are uncertain of what will happen if they are tested and found to have a fever.Ebola crisis puts pressure on human rights AP PHOTOA health care worker mixes chlorine with water at an Ebola treatment center in Hastings, Freetown, Sierra Leone, Wednesday. | WORLDEgypt warplanes hit Libya militiasBENGHAZI, Libya (AP) Egypt deepened its involvement in the ght against Islamist militias who have taken over key parts of Libya on Wednesday, with ofcials saying Egyptian war planes have bombed their positions in the eastern city of Benghazi. The two ofcials, who have rsthand knowledge of the operation, said the use of the aircraft was part of an Egyptian-led campaign against the militiamen that will eventually involve Libyan ground troops recently trained by Egyptian forces.Lower oil prices accelerate ruble collapseMOSCOW (Bloomberg) The decline in oil prices may be depriving Russian President Vladimir Putin of his biggest ally. Oil has been the key to Putins grip on power since he took over from Boris Yeltsin in 2000, fueling a booming economy that grew 7 percent on average from 2000 to 2008. Now, with economic growth slipping close to zero, Russia is reeling from sanctions by the United States and the European Union over its land grab in Ukraine, and from a ruble at a record low.Police moves in Hong Kong spark outrageHONG KONG (AP) Riot police moving against activists before dawn Wednesday sparked outrage after ofcers were seen kicking a handcuffed protester and dragging dozens of others away in the worst violence against the pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong since they began more than two weeks ago. Protesters were knocked to the ground by hundreds of police, some with batons, pepper spray and shields. Ofcers also tore down barricades around an underpass outside the governments headquarters.Bomber kills 5 anti-Taliban elders in PakistanISLAMABAD (AP) A suicide bomber targeted a meeting of anti-Taliban elders Wednesday in a tribal region bordering Afghanistan, killing ve people and wounding 10, security ofcials said. The attacker, who was wearing an explosive vest, blew himself up as the elders met in the Tirah Valley in the Khyber tribal region, two ofcials said. They said the dead and wounded were transported to a government hospital. The ofcials spoke on condition of anonymity.Documentary: Hitler was a meth addictWASHINGTON (Washington Post) Adolf Hitler is remembered as many things: a genocidal warmonger, a hateful ideologue, a failed art student. But the phrase drug addict is usually not high among the list of epithets. A documentary, to be aired this weekend by Britains Channel 4, digs into the Fhrers hidden drug habit. Based on details in a 47-page American military dossier compiled during the war, Hitler was taking a cocktail of 74 different drugs, including a form of what is now commonly known as crystal meth. British jobless rate declinesLONDON (Bloomberg) British unemployment fell more than forecast to the lowest in six years, according to a report Wednesday that also pointed to a cooling in the strength of the labor market. The jobless rate based on International Labor Organization methods dropped to 6 percent in the three months through August from 6.2 percent, the Ofce for National Statistics said in London Wednesday. The data also showed that jobless claims fell the least since April 2013 in September and the economy created jobs at the slowest pace in more than a year in the latest quarter.

She threatened them with laps. I said if they didnt cheer really loud, if I didnt think it was an adequate cheer after every point, if I didnt see them talking to the people beside them and giving them energy, Burkhart said, there were going to be consequences for it.

The Big Ten, often maligned, has Michigan State on a course for the national seminals and a couple of other ranked, one-loss schools standing by if the Spartans falter. The Big 12 and Pac-12 each have a handful of teams in the polls, too. The Atlantic Coast Conference has only Florida State. The defending NCAA champions have cruised to a 6-0 record and a comfortable spot near the top of the Top 25. But as the second-ranked Seminoles (6-0) head into this weekends game against No. 5 Notre Dame, they are carrying not only their own title hopes but those of their whole conference.

ASH, England Defending champion Graeme McDowell and Victor Dubuisson began the World Match Play Championship with comfortable wins on Wednesday, three weeks after teaming up as one of Europes top pairings in the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. McDowell had a 3-and-2 victory over Alexander Levy, who won the Portugal Masters on Sunday, and Dubuisson beat Pablo Larrazabal by the same score in the rst of three group matches at The London Club in southeast England. Historically in this event the last couple of years I have been getting off to slow starts and you dont want to put yourself in the hole against good players, said McDowell, who was 4 up after 10 holes against Levy in the rst match of the day. So a good start for me was key. ... I got going with the putter and was able to build a winning lead. Henrik Stenson, at No. 5 the highest-ranked player in the 16-man eld, halved his match with George Coetzee of South Africa. Two other members of Europes Ryder Cup winning team, Stephen Gallacher and Jamie Donaldson, lost to Shane Lowry and Paul Casey, respectively. Patrick Reed, the U.S. teams top points scorer in Gleneagles, opened with a 2-and-1 loss to Jonas Blixt. Reed won 3 points in the Ryder Cup in his rst appearance in the competition. Blixt went ahead with a birdie at No. 7 and was never behind after that. It was one of those days where both of us played pretty solid, but at the end of the day I didnt really make anything, said the Texas-born Reed. Joost Luiten and Thongchai Jaidee, who lost to McDowell in last years nal, also opened with wins.

MLB PLAYOFFS: NLCSAP PHOTOSan Franciscos Juan Perez scores past A.J. Pierzynski of St. Louis during Wednesday nights Game 4 in the NL Championship Series. The game was not complete in time for this edition. SAN FRANCISCO Adam Wainwright is determined to forget about his frustrating October outings and get back to the dominant postseason pitcher he used to be. The Cardinals ace is condent he made some key adjustments in a bullpen session Monday and will return to form when he starts tonights Game 5 of the NL Championship Series against the Giants. It remains unclear whether Yadier Molina will be able to catch him. A.J. Pierzynski was set to start for a second straight game Wednesday in place of Molina, who strained his left oblique during Sundays Game 2. Wainwright said he and the pitching staff have plenty of condence in Pierzynski, who chatted up several teammates in a circle near near home plate before batting practice. He is encouraged by his progress. The positives to take away were when your arm doesnt feel the best, you need everything else to be locked in and your delivery to be sharp, Wainwright said. My delivery was not sharp. My arm didnt feel great the last few times out. Now my arm feels better and my delivery should be much sharper, so it should be a much more polished pitcher you see. The right-hander has failed to make it out of the fth inning in each of his two postseason starts, raising speculation about his health and prompting general manager John Mozeliak to acknowledge Wainwright might be tired after pitching 227 innings following a career-high 24123 a year ago in 2013. The 33-year-old Wainwright went 20-9 with a 2.38 ERA in 32 starts for the second 20-win season in his nineyear major league career.

The Orioles only could watch the Royals celebration in stunned silence. The talented Baltimore squad lost the series four games by a combined six runs. The baseball gods will be kind to you, Orioles Manager Buck Showalter said not long before the start of Game 4, if you stay true. Perhaps. They were kind to somebody but rarely the Orioles in this series. The little bounces and fortunate twists always seemed to side with the team in blue. To be sure, though, the series never hinged on luck or fate. For the Royals, ALCS MVP Lorenzo Cain had eight hits and ve runs in four games. Mike Moustakas blasted a pair of homers. The defense consistently stole hits and saved runs, from Moustakas stellar glovework to the sprinters in the outeld. In the fth inning Wednesday, Alex Gordon reached over his head on the run and made a catch just a split second before crashing into the left eld wall. Of course, he held on. And the Kansas City bullpen allowed two earned runs in 16 innings of work. Meanwhile, the Orioles kept waiting for big hits that rarely came and were never big enough. Their best bat, Adam Jones, produced four hits in the series and whiffed at least once in each game ve times total while Steve Pearce managed one hit in 17 at-bats. And not a single Baltimore starter lasted six innings on the mound. The contest had barely started before Baltimore watched its hopes of climbing out of a threegame hole unravel and in a manner that has come to typify the quirky Kansas City bunch. The Royals managed four base runners and scored a pair of runs in the rst inning before even hitting the ball out of the ineld. Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar led off with a soft grounder up the middle that was just good enough to be called a hit. The second batter, Norichika Aoki, was hit by a pitch, and Royals Manager Ned Yost instructed Cain, the teams top hitter this postseason, to lay down a sacrice bunt. With runners on second and third, Eric Hosmer tapped a grounder to rst, and Pearce red the ball home. The throw was in the dirt, and as Escobar slid into the plate, he booted the ball to the backstop, which allowed Aoki to score, too. Pearce was charged with a throwing error, and the lights began to dim on the Orioles season. The Orioles managed to put a dent in that lead in the third on Ryan Flahertys leadoff homer to right, and their best chance to tie came in the sixth. Baltimore put runners at the corners with cleanup hitter Nelson Cruz strolling to the plate. Facing Kansas City reliever Kelvin Herrera, the hard-hitting left elder sent a 99-mph fastball back up the middle, but Royals second baseman Omar Infante needed to make just one step to snare the line drive and end the inning. From there, as it has all series, the Kansas City bullpen cruised. Three Royals relievers combined to allow two hits in 323 scoreless innings to secure the win and bring the World Series to Kansas City for the rst time in nearly three decades.ROYALSFROM PAGE 1
The Sun /Thursday, October 16, 2014 www.sunnewspapers.net SP Page 3 NFL: MiamiBraced for a big challengeDAVIE Miami Dolphins cornerbacks Brent Grimes and Cortland Finnegan are 5-foot-10 and often look even smaller, which will be the case Sunday against the big Chicago Bears. Unless we sign a couple of guys from the Heat, we probably are going to have a size discrepancy there, Dolphins defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said. As two of the NFLs smallest players, Grimes and Finnegan are accustomed to size mismatches. But even by their standards, the Bears present a tall order with 6-4 Brandon Marshall and 6-3 Alshon Jeffery at receiver. Through six games, the Pro Bowl duo has combined for 56 catches and seven touchdowns. Theyre big, Finnegan said. We dont have Luol Deng, so weve got to gure it out. Marshall and Jeffery arent Jay Cutlers only large targets. Tight end Martellus Bennett is 6-6, and 6-2, 218-pound running back Matt Forte leads the NFL with 46 catches and enjoys running over cornerbacks. To compound the challenge, Grimes and Finnegan are coming off their worst game of the season in Sundays last-minute loss to Green Bay. Grimes allowed Jordy Nelson to make nine catches for 107 yards and a score, and Finnegans poor tackling led to two touchdowns. Finnegan declined to blame a sore neck that limited him in practice last week. I cant use my neck as a crutch, he said. I just didnt tackle well. Ive got to shore that up. The Packers mounted long drives to score twice in the nal 4:09 for a 27-24 victory. Finnegan said the Dolphins (2-3) cant allow the wrenching defeat to linger. The Chicago Bears dont give a rip what happened against the Green Bay Packers, he said. So weve got to go out there and give them our best. That means clamping down on their towering wideouts, even though Marshall claimed his six-inch height advantage will not be a big deal against Miami. He ranked Grimes as one of the NFLs top two cornerbacks. Theres not a mismatch out there, Marshall said Wednesday. This is probably going to be the best secondary we face all year. Grimes is a technician. Hes super-duper focused. And we all know about Cortland hes hy per-competitive and makes plays on the ball. Last weeks game aside, Grimes and Finnegan have played well for the most part this season. Grimes might not be performing at his Pro Bowl level of last year, but he remains the best player in a solid secondary, while Finnegan has revived his career after an injury-plagued 2013 with the St. Louis Rams. But they have yet to face a duo like Marshall and Jeffery, who combine their size with good speed and offer two go-to options close to the goal line. The Bears rank third in the NFL with 15 redzone touchdowns. In the red zone they pose a problem because Cutler can throw the ball higher, Finnegan said. Youve got to play through the receiver, play through his hands. Coach Joe Philbin agreed there are ways his cornerbacks can and must compensate for their height disadvantage. We cant do anything to necessarily elevate them in the next four days from a stature standpoint, Philbin said. They are going to have to play with good fundamentals. The Dolphins also hope to confuse Cutler and force takeaways by mixing their coverages and applying a strong pass rush, Philbin said. He often preaches about the need for takeaways, but the Dolphins have only three interceptions this season, with one by Grimes and none by Finnegan. I dont think we can play one coverage, Philbin said. I dont think were going to press every play; I dont think were going to be off every play. Weve got to mix it up. Weve got to get some pressure on their quarter back and hopefully force them into a bad decision or two, get our hands on the ball. All of those good things that good defenses do, were going to need to do. By some measures, the Dolphins have been stout on defense this year. Theyre allowing 6.1 yards per pass, third-best in the NFL. Theyre also allowing only 3.8 per rush, which is eighth best. But theyre 25th in points allowed per game. Were not consistent enough, Finnegan said. We have the playmakers. We just dont play great all the time.By STEVEN WINEASSOCIATED PRESDolphins cornerbacks outmatched in size AP PHOTOMiamis Brent Grimes pulls down Green Bays Jordy Nelson after one of Nelsons nine receptions for 107 yards in Sundays game. DOLPHINS AT BEARSWHO: Miami (2-3) at Chicago (3-3) WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m. WHERE: Soldier Field, Chicago TV: CBS RADIO: TBD TALLAHASSEE Former Heisman winner Bo Jackson said Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston needs to make some change, but Jackson is done trying to help. Jackson said on the Jim Rome Show this week that Winston has not listened to his guidance and has no plans to reach out again. Im the type of person, I will go out of my way to help anybody, Jackson said. (But) if you cant take that advice and learn from it, then Ive got nothing else to do with the situation. Youre on your own. Both are from Bessemer, Ala. Winston, who has said he looked up to Jackson, is facing a code of conduct hearing after a former FSU student said he sexually assaulted her in December 2012. No. 1 Mississippi State ready for break: The first half of Mississippi States season was perfect. Now quarterback Dak Prescott and the Bulldogs get some time to decompress before the second half begins. No. 1 Mississippi State (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) is off this weekend after winning three straight games against top-10 opponents. The Bulldogs dont play again until a road game against Kentucky on Oct. 25. Its good to get a little break where you dont have to prepare and scout so hard as if you were playing on a Saturday, Prescott said. It comes at a valuable time after a good little stretch. BB gun incident causes $880 in damage: The BB gun incident that led to a one-game suspension for seven North Carolina State football players caused $880 worth of damage to two cars, according to incident reports filed by campus and city police. The incident took place Oct. 6 six days before the Wolfpacks 30-14 loss to Boston College at an apartment complex near campus. In a statement, associate athletic director Fred Demarest said the players involved will be making full restitution. Around the nation: Louisville junior running back/kick returner Corvin Lamb will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn right anterior cruciate ligament.

The NFL sent a newsletter outlining basic facts about the Ebola virus to all team doctors and trainers for distribution to players and staff. The league said Wednesday the newsletter was written by the Duke Infection Control Outreach Network, the leagues infectious disease consultants, and sent to the leagues 32 teams on Monday in the unlikely event that they actually have such contact, the doctors wrote. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Wednesday in an email the newsletter was informational. The two doctors who signed the newsletter advised teams that they did not need to screen players or staff to make sure they have not had close contact with anyone who traveled to or from areas where Ebola is now endemic. Dolphins QB Tannehill limited by ankle injury: Ryan Tannehill is dealing with an ankle injury that kept him out of part of practice, according to the teams first injury report of the week. Tannehill gave no indication that he was hurt. The third-year quarterback has not missed a game, but his latest issue was enough for the Dolphins to add a second quarterback to their practice squad McLeod Bethel-Thompson joined Seth Lobato. Matt Moore is the only quarterback other than Tannehill on the 53-man roster. Around the league: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed former Chicago Bears cornerback Isaiah Frey. He was a sixth-round draft pick in 2012 and played all 16 games in 2013, making six starts with 47 tackles. This season, he played in three games with one start. He was waived last week. The Bucs have a bye this week. Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has been fined $25,000 for intentionally twisting the ankles of two Carolina Panthers players, according to multiple reports.

NFL NOTEBOOKFROM WIRE REPORTS JETS AT PATRIOTSWHO: N.Y. Jets (1-5) at New England (4-2) WHEN: Today, 8:25 p.m. WHERE: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass. TV: CBS, NFL Network RADIO: 99.3 FM before falling to Duke on Saturday and dropping out of the rankings. Clemson is now the only ACC team in the Top 25 other than Florida State but with two losses already and a No. 24 ranking, probably too far to climb into playoff contention. That means the Seminoles are the conferences best and perhaps only hope of getting an ACC team into a four-team playoff that will leave out at least one power conference champion. If the Seminoles lose this weekend to the last currently ranked team on their schedule, the ACC could lose out on a postseason berth, the $6 million payday that goes along with it and bear the stigma of being the worst of the Big Five leagues. It would be big if we get an ACC team into the playoff, said Boston College quarterback Tyler Murphy, who as a Florida transfer has more trouble than most rooting for the Seminoles. And, as a competitor, you hope FSU will be undefeated when they come into our game. Conferences have their rivalries, but most teams are able to put that behind them when it comes to nonconference games. So nding a favorite in this weekends game between the Seminoles and Irish isnt too difcult for most ACC players and coaches. But that only goes so far. You dont want to root for your enemy, but the enemy of your enemy is your friend, BC lineman Bobby Vardaro said, mindful of the fact that the Eagles and Seminoles will meet on Nov. 22. Then it just looks a lot better when we beat them. For sure, the other conferences have their own problems. The Big Ten was largely written off after Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State all lost nonconference games on the same early season weekend. The SEC is thought to be so deep and so strong, with four schools in the West Division in the top 10, that its conference champion could wind up with two losses. The Pac-12 has no unbeaten teams remaining. Asked about the possibility of the ACC being left out, Boston College coach Steve Addazio made the case for his conference, noting that last year it produced the national champion along with the winners of the Heisman Trophy winner (Winston), the Doak Walker Award (BCs Andre Williams), and Outland Trophy winner (Pittsburghs Aaron Donald).FSUFROM PAGE 1
Page 4 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, October 16, 2014 GAINESVILLE Florida has suspended highly-touted forward Chris Walker for the rst two games of the season for violating team rules. Coach Billy Donovan announced the discipline Wednesday at the teams annual media day, saying Walker also will miss an exhibition game against Barry University on Nov. 6. Donovan also said freshman Brandone Francis wont play this season because of NCAA academic issues. A 6-foot-5 guard from the Dominican Republic, Francis has been admitted to school but has to prove himself academically, Donovan said. Walker, a 6-foot10 sophomore from Bonifay, will sit out the regular-season opener against William & Mary on Nov. 15 and against Miami two days later. He is scheduled to return against LouisianaMonroe on Nov. 21. I think the biggest thing, his biggest challenge this year, is going to be his ability to manage expectations, Donovan said. You hear all these expectations, and people look at the fact that hes gotten physically strong and everything else. He has such a long way to go in terms of being reliable, accountable and disciplined. Those would be the three things I would say I dont have a real good grasp on right now, but were going to nd out. Walker averaged 1.9 points and 1.3 rebounds in 18 games last season. He sat out the rst 12 games because the NCAA determined he received improper benets. He was ordered to donate $270 to a charity of his choice and serve 80 hours of community service. Walker made his collegiate debut Feb. 4, spending the rest of year playing behind Patric Young, Will Yeguete and Dorian Finney-Smith. He announced in April that he was giving the Gators one more year before turning pro. Hes widely considered an NBA lottery pick because of his size, raw skill and athleticism. Ive never seen a guy have more hype coming into the middle of our year, Donovan said. I kept telling you guys, Listen, hes not going to be ready to do all that. I think I was accurate. I dont know what kind of impact hes going to make. Maybe hes got his own personal expectation of where he thinks he should be. If hes not at that level, how is he going to handle that? One of the most difcult things to deal with as a coach is when you have players with individual expectations that dont get met. Hes got to have a realistic expectation. Hes got a long way to go. So does Francis. There are things he has to do academically while hes here to get himself eligible to play, Donovan said. If he progresses in his rst semester like we hope he will, hell be allowed to come back to practice for the second semester.Gators suspend Walker for two gamesBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS COLLEGE BASKETBALL: FloridaHighly-touted forward will miss Floridas openers MIAMI Erik Spoelstra wanted Wednesday to be a full-contact practice day for the Miami Heat. Instead, school was in session. Everyone around the Heat knew that getting ready for this season would be different, since LeBron James has changed addresses and the roster looks much different than the ones Miami had on the way to making appearances in the NBA Finals in each of the last four years. The Heat are 0-4 in the preseason. Theyre giving up 109 points per game, on 48 percent shooting. And while everything happening now gets erased when the regular season starts in two weeks, theres some reasons for concern. I still want to win basketball games, Heat forward Chris Bosh said. There is a balance. You say process I do say that a lot just to be politically correct but in all actuality weve got to win some games. Weve got to play better defense. We have to start seeing something different. Process is a word Spoelstra uses often, and the process right now is certainly far different than the one Miami went through starting in 2011. Theres new players in the locker room, some of them being tried in multiple roles already this preseason. The defensive numbers rank near the bottom of the NBA. Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng and Danny Granger are all struggling with their shot, and Mario Chalmers, Josh McRoberts and Justin Hamilton are all hurt. Were not making excuses, said Spoelstra, the Heat coach since 2008. Every team is going through something, missing guys. Its about the type of team youre developing, committing to that, showing improvement. Were showing ashes. Were not showing improvement, yet. Tuesdays exhibition against Atlanta under scored Spoelstras words. One ash came early, when Miami ran out to a 19-point lead early in the second quarter. And then came the collapse, with the Heat not just blowing that entire lead but actually trailing by 20 at one point in the fourth quarter. Then came the next ash, with Miami getting within four with 2 minutes left, but no closer. Were process-oriented, so were not necessarily talking about the win, were talking about playing a consistent game which we havent gotten to, Spoelstra said Wednesday. Last night was schizophrenic, in terms of some of the very best of our basketball and some of our very worst. Were not playing to our identity. Theres no outward signs of panic. Wade is shooting 39 percent, Deng and Granger are both shooting 37 percent, but the Heat expected it would take time for everyone to get into game rhythm. Chalmers hip pointer is improving, McRoberts (toe) and Hamilton (heart ailment) both worked out Wednesday, and soon the Heat will be whole again. Were still trying to build our system, Spoelstra said. The Heat went through the lm on Wednesday, worked out specic details in practice and then spent much of the session again honing defense. With four preseason games left, there suddenly doesnt seem like a lot of time to get all the kinks ironed out. Bosh said its the little things, like whifng on screens and not making an extra pass, thats hurting the Heat on game nights so far. And strangely, he doesnt see those things happening in practice, only in the exhibitions. The potential is there, Bosh said. Weve just got to do the hard stuff. Around the league: In Cincinnati, LeBron James returned to Clevelands lineup and scored 10 of his 26 points in the third quarter to help the Cavaliers beat the Indiana Pacers 98-93, spoiling David Wests return to Xavier in preseason action. In Portland, Maine, Louis Williams made a 3-pointer with 0.6 seconds left to give the Toronto Raptors a 92-89 victory over the Boston Celtics in a preseason game. In Orlando, Nik Vucevic had 20 points and 11 rebounds as the Magic held off Flamengo 106-88 in an exhibition game In Washington, Otto Porter scored 19 points and Kevin Seraphin had 18 points and 12 rebounds to help the short-handed Wizards beat Israels Maccabi Haifa 101-95 in an exhibition game. Steve Nash missed his third straight practice after injuring his back while carrying travel bags Los Angeles Lakers Coach Byron Scott said, the latest setback in what is shaping up as Nashss final NBA season.

Krejci, Smith lead BruinsDETROIT David Krejci and Reilly Smith both scored in regulation and again in the shootout as the Boston Bruins beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 Wednesday night. The Bruins outshot Detroit 35-18 in regulation, and Jimmy Howard made three key saves in overtime the last to stop Torey Krug at pointblank range. Howard, though, couldnt stop Krejci and Smith in the shootout, while neither Gustav Nyquist or Andrej Nestrasil could get their shots on net. Nyquist tied the score at 2:56 of the third period, snapping a wrist shot past Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask to end Detroits streak of nine scoreless power plays. Tomas Tatar also scored for the Red Wings. Boston had two great chances in the final minute of regulation, but Howard made a pad save on Dougie Hamilton, then knocked away Simon Gagnes attempt to put in the rebound. Flames 2, Blackhawks 1, OT: In Chicago, Jonas Hiller made 49 saves and Mikael Backlund scored at 4:35 of overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames to a victorys. The Blackhawks controlled the action for much of the night, enjoying a 50-18 advantage in shots on goal. Around the league: The NHL selected Nashville to host the 2016 All Star game, a person with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press. The NHL scheduled a news conference for Friday morning in Nashville where Commissioner Gary Bettman is expected to make the officials announcement. Defenseman Jake Muzzin agreed to a five-year, $20 million contract extension with Los Angeles, passing on a chance at free agency to stay with the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Connecticut opened practice Wednesday with a lot of new faces, but the same goal of winning a national title. The two-time defending womens champions, who lost center Stefanie Dolson and guard Bria Hartley to graduation, have reloaded with the nations top recruiting class. Freshmen guards Kia Nurse, Gabby Williams, Courtney Ekmark and Sadie Edwards join a strong core of veterans, which includes Breanna Stewart, the reigning national player of the year. We have two teams, coach Geno Auriemma said. We have a team of older guys that dont know anything but winning national championships and weve got a team of young guys that dont know anything about winning any games. Auriemma said hes hoping to nd two shooters among the newer players who can help replace the production of Dolson and Hartley. Hes also hoping to get a major contribution from 6-foot2 forward Morgan Tuck, who received a medical redshirt after playing just eight games as a sophomore and undergoing major reconstructive surgery on her right knee in January. Tuck, who will still have three years of eligibility at UConn, said she is pain free and was excited to get back to practice Wednesday after her lengthy layoff. I think when you have to really work for something, now, when Im back playing, it makes it a lot more special, she said.New faces, familiar goal COLLEGE BASKETBALL: WomenUConns pursuit of another title starts anewBy PAT EATON-ROBBASSOCIATED PRESS KANSAS CITY, Mo. The preseason Big 12 player of the year began his career at Dayton. The newcomer of the year spent time at Southern California and UNLV before landing at Iowa State. Welcome to big-time college basketball in the modern era, where four-year transfers are all the rage. The movement between Division I programs, once relatively rare, has become so prevalent that many coaches are even changing the way they build their programs. Consider Oklahoma State, which had players depart for Miami and Louisiana-Lafayette this past offseason while welcoming high-scoring guard Anthony Hickey from LSU. You almost have to keep a scholarship available, Cowboys coach Travis Ford said during the Big 12s annual media day Wednesday. You could almost do your recruiting in the spring, as many good players as are out there, as well call difference-makers. According to STATS, the number of players who appeared in at least one game for more than one Division I school has nearly tripled over the past decade, from 122 in 2004-05 to 325 last year. That amounts to nearly one player for every school in the country. The trend is especially pronounced in the Big 12. West Virginia guard Juwan Staten, who earned the preseason player of the year nod from the leagues coaches, started 34 games for the Flyers as a freshman. Top newcomer Bryce Dejean-Jones, a dynamic shooting guard, played his freshman season for USC, his sophomore and junior years with UNLV and will nish his college career at Iowa State. In fact, every school in the 10-member confer ence has had at least one player transfer to or come from another Division I school over the past two seasons. Around the nation: LSU coach Johnny Jones said one of the key challenges in his third season will be trying to win games while learning about a team full of new players as the Tigers try to end a six-year streak without an NCAA tournament bid. Louisiana Tech was the preseason favorite to win Conference USA and Green Bay was picked to repeat as champion in Horizon League.Big 12 hopes for transfer of power COLLEGE BASKETBALL NOTEBOOKBY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The tracks jockeys agreed to cancel Wednesdays races in remembrance of Saez. The track planned a public memorial for him today. Guild chairman and fellow rider John Velazquez said Saez was surrounded by other riders, his agent and close friends when he died. Saez, who was from Panama, is the younger brother of nationally known rider Luis Saez, who is based in New York. Juan Saez was aboard Montezuma Express when his mount clipped heels with the horse in front of him, Paddys Note. Saezs mount fell, causing him to be unseated.

Garber, the leagues commissioner since 1999, questioned whether Klinsmann could be an effective coach while publicly criticizing MLS. A U.S. Soccer Federation official, speaking on condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized, said later that Klinsmann wasnt in danger of losing his job. The 32-year-old Donovan, the career scoring leader for the national team and MLS, was cut by Klinsmann in May and denied a trip to a fourth World Cup. I believe that Landon should have been in Brazil, not because he earned it or deserved it, but because his performance dictated it, Garber said during a conference call with reporters. And if anybody disagrees with that, and some of you might clearly Jurgen does then I believe that his treatment was inexcusable. ... Serbian officials accused Albania of a deliberate political provocation after a drone flew an Albanian nationalist banner over a stadium in Belgrade during a soccer match between the two Balkan rivals, sparking violence between players and fans. The referee halted and then abandoned the scoreless European Championship qualifying match in the 41st minute Tuesday night when a Serbian player grabbed the banner which carried a map of Albania enlarged to include chunks of its neighbors and Albanian players tried to protect it. As the players clashed, Serbian fans then ran onto the field and clashed with Albanian players. ... The Canadian Soccer Association maintains the artificial turf that will be used at the 2015 Womens World Cup is first class and that a gender discrimination lawsuit filed by several players over the surface has no merit.

Marussia refuted news reports that Bianchi had been told to ignore the yellow flags and keep racing at full pace in the wet and dim conditions at the race earlier this month, saying the claims were entirely false. The French driver lost control of his car and went off the circuit, hitting a mobile crane that was inside the trackside barriers to collect another car.

Page 6 SP www.sunnewspapers.net The Sun /Thursday, October 16, 2014 PORT CHARLOTTE The Port Charlotte High School swim team has had extra time to get ready for the postseason. The Pirates did not go to last weekends tri-county championships because of homecoming, and havent competed since a home dual meet against against Evangelical Christian on Oct. 6. They also have the latest district meet of area teams: Oct. 30 at Florida Gulf Coast University. Coach J.R. Whaley said after the last meet that he could see the threeplus weeks his team has between the end of the regular season and the start of the postseason being both an advantage and a disadvantage. Tri-county is a good meet, a fast meet, but at the same time, coming off (the county championships), we have a lot to work on and it gives us some extra time to break down some strokes and get the kids ready to go and red up, he said. Another newcomer helping Charlotte: The Tarpons got a huge boost last season when Neelin Vakil came out of nowhere to qualify for states in multiple events, including the 100 breaststroke, in which he made the A-final. Theyve gotten a similar surprise this season from senior Ethan Goff, who started diving in August and placed second behind teammate Eric Stover at the county championships and tri-county championships. Goffs improvement, along with the improvement of fellow diver Gibson Bitner, who placed third at the tri-county meet, is a big reason coach Jeff Cain believes his boys could be a top-three team at the Class 3A state meet next month. Neal named home coming queen: Port Charlotte senior swimmer Kaela Neal was named the schools homecoming queen at the Pirates football game last Friday. Her boyfriend, Lukas Phillips, was named the homecoming king.Contact Zach Miller at 941-206-1140 or email@example.com.By ZACH MILLERSPORTS WRITER PREP SWIMMING NOTEBOOKPirates rested heading into postseasonTaking a timeout SUN PHOTO BY DOUG SAHLINPort Charlottes Derek Walker swims during the Charlotte County Championships on Oct. 4.

Its worked just ne for Jayla Cowell, who saw a major jump in minutes after injuries sidelined Bethany Bonville, Kaitlin Steyer and Cassidy Furr. Bulldogs coach Laura White said Cowell is very athletic but is still learn ing the ner points of the game when pressed into action. All are pleasantly surprised with the results, but Cowell is rst to admit she had a supporting cast. Kaitlin has been helping me in the middle, with tips and everything, said the sophomore, who had a team-high six kills, two blocks and two aces in a loss to Charlotte on Tuesday. And Bethany, shes on the bench just yelling, You got this, you got it, and Cassidy has been keeping my attitude up, taking the pressure off me and telling me Ill get it back next time. They are great. Bonville (foot) is hopeful to return by the time district playoffs start next week, Steyer (ankle) may be ready by the regional round and the jury is still out on Furr, who suffers from an oblique strain. Cowell is condent her team can hold things together until their return. Im not disappointed (in the way we have played), she said. We want to play the best of the best, and we want to play hard. We want to have them back as soon as we can, but its good that theyre still with us (on the bench), and not too far away. The quiet riot: Pirates senior Haley Dionisio is far from the loudest on Port Charlottes side of the court, and doesnt put up flashy numbers like some of her front-row teammates. But what the defensive specialist and consistent server does bring to the table is a grit that inspires the Pirates without Dionisio having to say a word. Haley played her heart out, coach Chrissy Burkhart said, after Mondays hard-fought loss to Charlotte. It doesnt always show in the stats, but she does well. Dionisio had eight kills against Charlotte. Tarpons duo making waves: Much like Dionisio, Charlottes Jessie Valerius and Kaylee Brannon are two workhorses who have really stepped up their game lately, Tarpons coach Michelle Dill said. Valerius had six kills in a win against DeSoto County on Tuesday and Brannon added several digs to add two more weapons to Charlottes already potent game.Cowell steps up for Bulldogs PREP VOLLEYBALL NOTEBOOKBy DAWN KLEMISHSPORTS WRITER DONT MISS THESE GAMESThe district playoffs begin Monday, with championship games being held Friday. Charlotte needs to win only one game to advance, but must get past top-seed Fort Myers to do so. The real dogfight should be on the edges of the county, as Lemon Bay and DeSoto County will battle for a regional berth. The teams were evenly matched throughout the season but only one will advance to the district championship.PREP SCHEDULETODAY Volleyball Community Christian at Oasis, 5:30 p.m. Community School of Naples at Imagine, 6 p.m. Lemon Bay at LaBelle, 6 p.m. Out-of-Door Academy at Char lotte (senior night), 7 p.m. North Port at DeSoto County (senior night), 7:30 p.m. Cross Country DeSoto County at Morgan Park, Arcadia, 4:30 p.m. I decided to give it a go because I yell a lot, Makarenkov said. It was fun, I like the yelling. Im gonna try to lead it at districts. Makarenkov and Cicchella combined to win three individual events and two relays, helping the Manta Ray boys to a 260-143 win. Makarenkov won the 100 backstroke by swimming it in one minute, 2.56 seconds, and Cicchella won the 200 individual medley with a 2:24.11 and the 100 buttery in 1:04.45. They also teamed up for victories in the 200 medley relay and 200 freestyle relay. As the team gets ready for the postseason, which starts with the District 2A-9 meet on Oct. 28, Makarenkov and Cicchella both aim for personal bests and a trip to regionals in their individual events. Theyre also hopeful that they can shave a few seconds off their 200 medley relay time and earn a trip to states. The Lemon Bay boys and girls teams both won district titles last season, but the boys team was depleted by the loss of several seniors. Hall said she hopes the boys can place in the top four in at districts. Also honored on Wednesday were the four Lemon Bay senior girls Sophie Cattermole, Kaitlyn Hansen, Alexandria Naugle and Kayla Hleuka and team manager Karina Hleuka. The four seniors swam together in the 200 freestyle relay and took second place as the Manta girls won 292-168. The six North Port seniors, who celebrated senior day three weeks ago in Venice because the team doesnt have a pool for home meets, walked together hand-in-hand to applause from both teams after Lemon Bay completed its ceremony.

That was good to see, and that was the difference tonight. All the momentum belonged to Lemon Bay to start the match, even after a three-set junior varsity match, senior night festivities and a re alarm delayed the start for more than an hour. The Mantas all-senior rotation stormed to a 2-0 lead, going on impressive late-set runs in both victories. Port Charlotte won Game 3, though, scoring six of the sets nal nine points to stay alive in the match. There was a game plan: if they won the rst one, they got to stay in, if they won second one, they got to stay in, Lemon Bay coach Stacy DeWolfe said. But in the (fourth), it was time to put some other girls in, because they were getting a little bit tired. The move looked like it sparked the Mantas initially, as setter Jessie Leclerc recorded four aces to lead Lemon Bay to an early 9-1 advantage in Game 4. But Port Charlotte was able to chip away at that decit and eventually overcome it with a 19-6 run of its own. The main issue is, our hitters got so used to a setter that is down, DeWolfe said of the difference between Leclerc and senior Melissa Maheu. Then you put in a setter that jump sets and it kind of throws everybodys hit a little bit off. We were trying to get it put back together, but we struggled with that. The teams stayed deadlocked for much of the decisive fth set, trading points until Lemon Bay took a 7-6 advantage halfway through. But the Pirates went on a tear after calling a timeout, using three kills from middle hitter Sabrina Fultz to spark an 11-2 run to secure the set and the match. We really needed this win, because our condence has been shaken a little bit lately, Burkhart said. So the fact that they came through this and came together, I couldnt ask for a better practice going into next Tuesday and districts.Contact Josh Vitale at 941-206-1122 or email@example.com.PIRATESFROM PAGE 1 SUN PHOTO BY KATHERINE GODINA Lemon Bay High Schools Maureen Ryan goes up for a kill as Port Charlottes Faith Price defends during Wednesdays match in Englewood.

To ensure this valuable resource is available for generations to come, take care when removing crab claws, and follow all protective management guidelines for stone crab harvest. To be harvested, stone crab claws must be at least 2.75 inches in length when measured from the elbow to the tip of the lower immovable portion of the claw. To watch a video showing how to properly remove the claw, and increase the likelihood of survival of the released crab, go to http://ow.ly/CFDqC. Claws may not be taken from egg-bearing stone crabs. Egg-bearing females are identiable by the orange or brown egg mass, also known as a sponge, which is visible on the underside of the crab when it is picked up or turned over. Recreational harvesters can use up to ve stone crab traps per person. Stone crabs may not be harvested with any device that can puncture, crush or injure a crabs body. Examples of devices that can cause this kind of damage include spears and hooks. Recreational and commercial traps may be baited and placed in the water 10 days prior to the opening of the season but may not be pulled from the water for harvest purposes until Oct. 15. Harvesters are encouraged to take only one claw, even if both claws are of legal size, so that the released crab will be better able to defend itself from predators. A crab that is returned to the water with one claw intact will also be able to obtain more food in a shorter amount of time and therefore regrow its other claw faster. There is a recreational daily bag limit of 1 gallon of claws per person or 2 gallons per vessel, whichever is less. The season will be open through May 15, 2015, closing May 16. Stone crab regulations are the same in state and federal waters. For more information on harvesting stone crabs for recreation, as well as commercial stone crab regulations and licensing information, go to MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on Saltwater. Provided by the FWC FWC photoGimme that tasty claw! WaterLine has gone pink this week to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month. With an increasing number of women participating in all types of outdoor recreation, I think its very appropriate that we pay attention to one of their leading healthcare issues one that we ought to be able to nd a solution to. I know a lot of guys cringe at the thought. Man up. Actually, a lot of guys cringe at things that are pink. I call them pinkaphobes. Im not sure why pinkaphobia is so common in men. Ive never suered from it myself. I have a pink Fishin Franks rod, which I actually use. I have a pink dress shirt and matching tie. If you dig through my tackle bag, youll nd lots of pink lures (although I think thats more about the shes preference than mine). When I was a kid, I came within a few days of being the owner of a hot pink Camaro. I had the appointment set, but the engine blew up before it made it to the painter. Anyway supporting women in the outdoors. In Granddads day, it was fairly rare for women to sh or hunt for pleasure, though many did to put food on the table. Now that more women are picking up rods and guns, something that many men have a tough time admitting has become apparent: Theyre better at it than we are. Why? Well, they stink less. No, literally. Their pheromones are dierent from ours, and theyre not as repulsive to sh and animals. Plus, theyre generally much better at taking instruction and learning new things because they listen, instead of assuming they already know all they need to know. But dont be threatened. Just admit it and learn to live with it. Now that theyve gured out how much fun it is, theres no way theyre going to quit now. Youve just got to be man enough to be beaten by a woman. Cant handle it? Tough. Thinking pink FROM THE PUBLISHERS DESK JOSH OLIVE A .. .tomItwo,Ilemomwww"IXa,1 er v1 ^ rl ,' \II '-Jj

Snook are hitting Snook are hitting Snook DOA Bait Busters around creek mouths. Cobia are scat tered, mostly around pods of bait. Big jacks are teaming up with redsh to attack bait schools. The kingsh are starting to show up along with the Spanish mackerel Cobia reports have picked up, but most have been shorts. The nearshore gag bite is slow but guys willing to make long drives are nding sh. Redsh schools are getting bigger as the days get short er. There are also a lot of very large reds being caught. Fish are roaming the east and west walls as well as outside Bull and Turtle bays. A live pinsh is tough to beat. Big black drum and pan-size croaker are hiding under croaker are hiding under croaker the U.S 41 bridges. Theyll eat shrimp or squid. Slot snook are around most any structure. The channel edges and outside of the Cape Haze bar are holding pompano Youll also nd big 10to 15-pound redsh there, or look under the sh houses in Bull Bay for keepers. Trout are biting well at Burnt Store. Flounder are scattered but picking Flounder are scattered but picking Flounder up. Tarpon 5 to 100 pounds are around Colony Point. Mangrove and lane snapper are coming lane snapper are coming lane snapper form 5 to 10 miles out. Troll deep-running plugs along the ledges for gag grouper Kingsh are still a bit slow, but trolling a Drone spoon along the edges of the Spanish mackerel schools can pay o. Cobia are showing as well, so keep an eye out. Spanish mackerel are thick from Alligator Creek Reef to 10 miles oshore. You can have 100-sh days if you want to pull on that many. Take the kids and have some fun. The bite has been hot and cold, with little consistency in most species. Mangrove snapper are the exception; theyre on the ats and biting well. Small sharks are all over the ICW from Placida to Captiva. Snook are on Snook are on Snook the beaches, in the passes, in the Harbor and moving around a lot. Schools of redsh are still inshore, but the better reports of big reds are coming from 10 to 18 miles out (troll big lipped plugs). Gag reports are getting better from anglers trolling lipped plugs in 45 feet of water. The rst good wave of kingsh is starting to move in behind this front. Lane and mangrove snapper and porgies are on the reefs; if youre getting bait stolen, its probably sheepshead which are gathering to move inshore. Tarpon are from the rivers to the 20-foot holes. River sh are biting best; try ladysh, Hogys or DOA Bait Busters. The babies have moved back into the canals.

F ISHING R ULES Scientists with the FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) are asking snook anglers to save their lleted carcasses and take them to a participating bait and tackle store in their area. These carcasses provide information on the size, age, maturity and sex of the catch. This program allows anglers to participate in the collection of data regarding Floridas premier inshore game sh. FWRI conducts applied research and provides scientic information used to manage Floridas marine resources. GUIDELINES FOR DONATING SNOOK CARCASSES All regulations apply. Donate only legal snook during open snook season. Donate all sizes that you harvest. (Donating only large sh will bias the data.) Donate as many sh and as often as you can; however, do not harvest sh for the program. Keep only those snook you would normally keep. Donate both tagged and untagged sh. If a snook is tagged, please report tag information to the Angler Tag Return Hotline at 800-367-4461. When lleting, please leave all internal organs intact.

Page 8 October 16, 2014 OK, we had a cool front come through. Our humidity dropped by quite a bit, and the temperature went down enough to be notice able. But dont jump the gun it takes more than a couple days of milder weather to call an end to our long, hot summer. Some folks who like catching crappie and sheepshead (sh that bite best in winter) got a little excited. We had a few people calling to ask if we had crappie minnows, guring that the cold snap would have the bite red up. Sorry, people thats not how it works. Fish dont much notice changes in air temperature, and the water temperature hasnt changed much at all. Water holds heat pretty well, and until we have a more signicant cold spell theres going to be little fundamental change. Even if it was a lot cooler right now, theres still another important part of the equation to consider, at least for saltwater anglers. Although its rained less over the past week (as of this writing, anyway) theres still a lot of water coming down the rivers and there will be for a little while. One of the reasons that winter shing in the upper half of the Harbor improves so much is that the salinity goes up. Until the river ow drops, the Harbor is going to be too fresh for the kind of shing we expect in winter. Theres no doubt that well be seeing some major changes before too much longer, though. The rainy season is coming to a close, and once it does then the rivers will taper o. Well be seeing more cold fronts coming through (look for a stronger one around the next full moon) and both air and water temperatures will be falling. Just dont expect it to happen overnight these changes take a little time. And the shing will change the same way: Over time. As the sh swims, its something like 19 nautical miles from Boca Grande Pass to El Jobean or the U.S. 41 bridges. It doesnt take terribly long for a sh to make that trip, if its determined to do it. If you gure a mile an hour, it could be done in less than a day. But sheepshead dont just swim nonstop from the Gulf to El Jobean. They come inshore in stages. Youll see them on the ats long before theyll be stacked up the pilings, and theyre only just now making a showing on the ats. Itll be several weeks maybe even a couple months, depending on the weather before you can expect decent numbers of sheepies around the bridges and piers of the upper Harbor. There will be a few that show up early, but dont mistake a couple stragglers for the real run. Thats going to be the case with all of our winter shing patterns. Theyll take some time to become established, and while they do well be in the midst of a transition. The transitional phase can be a time of frustration for anglers, for one simple reason: Fish arent where you probably want them to be. For right now, the most productive areas are south of Pirate Harbor on the east wall and south of Cape Haze on the west side. As the freshwater ow slows down, the sh will start to spread north. That means that good shing in the upper Harbor is still mostly an oxymoron, at least for a few more weeks. So you may still need to put a few miles on in search of saltier water and better shing. Dont complain. There have been years in recent memory when we were sweating out red tide blooms in mid-October, so just remember that things could be a whole lot worse.

Page 9 October 16, 2014 We all know that ladysh can be a ton of fun on light tackle. If you really stop and think about it, what other small sh do we have around here that will eat just about anything you throw at it, make your drag sing, jump clear out of the water over and over and over, and stay nicely packed in large schools so you can have fun catching them for pretty much as long as you would like? I cant think of any other sh around here with that many positive attributes. In fact, the only grievance I have with lady sh is that they poop all over the place when I get them in the boat. At least they dont poke or bite me, like most other sh out there do. I nd it sad that most people I talk with consider them a junk sh just because theyre not considered good eating. Actually, saying that a ladysh is not a good eating sh is wrong in oh so many ways. Im here to tell you that ladysh are delicious just not to humans. Mother Nature aint no fool, and she has never introduced a junk sh into any of the waters on this great planet. Every sh out there has a purpose, and the ladysh is no exception: Its purpose is to be a food source for other critters (and maybe to save a really bad day of shing). Im pretty sure mullet and manatees are the only thing around here that dont eat them. As far as baitsh go, in my book ladysh are by far the most versatile one out there. You can use them live, dead, whole, cut, butteried, chunked, diced, sliced, chopped, mushed or ground. You can drift them, troll them, chum with them, put them under a oat or just leave them sitting under a mangrove branch. No matter how you present it, something out there will scarf it down. Here are just a few ways to present ladysh to some of our favorite species. If you get a kick out of presenting live bait to predators, try a ladysh. Tarpon, sharks and really big snook love live ladysh and rarely pass one up that looks like an easy target. I like to use 7/0 or 8/0 circle hooks when using them live. Hook them through the bottom lip out through the hard part of the top lip. When shing for sharks and tarpon, I oat them about 6 feet under a small balloon to keep them up high in the water column. When Im looking for serious snook (35 inches plus), I free-line them in the vicinity of where I think those monsters might be. Using ladies as live bait can sometimes be frustrating, but when it goes right the outcome is worth the trouble. If you dont mind getting a little messy when youre shing, using cut ladysh is a good idea. Its a well-known fact (ask any tour nament angler) that redsh have a very hard time passing up tasty ladysh chunks sitting on the bottom. If you happen across a school of redsh anytime soon (and theyre all over the place right now) try putting a half-dollar-sized piece of ladysh on a quarter-ounce jighead and tossing it in front of the school. Ill bet Josh Olives job that you get a bite. Tarpon, sharks, snook, trout, snapper, grouper, ounder, jacks, cobia, mackerel, black drum, blue crabs and just about everything else that lives in our waters will also eat cut ladysh. Some sh will only eat it if its presented in a certain way, like when trolling strips for kings and cudas, but most sh eat it because it smells and tastes great to them, at least. Im hoping that after you read this column you have a little more respect for our lowly ladysh and no longer consider them junk sh. Fishing is supposed to be a fun sport. What is more fun than catching a sh that eats almost anything you throw at it, ghts hard and jumps? Then, as an added bonus, it can be used to make catching your favorite eating sh easier. This is a great time of the year to get out there and use a lady, so go give it a try and have a blast. Tight lines.Capt.

This week I am going to talk a bit about women in the rearm industry and what to expect when going into gun shops. Over the past few years the shooting world has seen a huge increase in interest from all demographics. The biggest single jump has been the number of women becoming gun owners and taking up the shooting sports. A quick look at the latest demographic data, done in late 2013 by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, shows the shooting community is becoming more: Youthful: 66 percent of new shooters fall into the 18to 34-year-old category, compared to 31 percent in the same age category for established shooters. Female: 37 percent of new target shooters are female, compared to 22 percent of estab lished target shooters. Urban: 47 percent of new target shooters live in urban/suburban settings, versus 34 percent of established target shooters. The report shows that one-fth of target shooters in America rst started participating in the shooting sports between 2008 and 2012. Think about that: 20 percent of all target shooters began participating in the past ve years. Thats serious growth. Today we are going to take a look at the female shooter who is considering a rst (or maybe a second) purchase. First o, we have a lot of guys shopping for a gun for their wife. Guys, do yourself a favor and bring her to the store with you. You may be pleasantly surprised at what you see in your local store female sales sta. Having been on the sales side of things for a while now, I have become friends with several women in the rearms industry. Let me tell you this they know more than most of their male counterparts for the simple fact they listen, work hard and have to be driven to succeed in a male-dominated industry. The knowledge base you need in this industry is quite large. Its good to be well-rounded in all areas; you need both book knowledge and practical experience. I recently asked two of my female coun terparts their thoughts on women in the industry and what made them enter the eld. Both of these women are well-versed in the rearms they carry and sell. Ms. Amy Graves, a young lady I met when I rst entered the gun business, started her rearms career in a gun store in the Dallas-Fort Worth area with basic knowledge of guns. After three years of sales and eventually instructing new shooters, Amy moved into the manufacturing side of the business and is now the spokeswoman for Bond Firearms. When I asked Amy recently why women should purchase from women, she said, Women can nd a sense of comfort in conding in another woman, asking questions and seeking knowledge, without the fear of looking ignorant or weak to the opposite sex. That really sums it up. Think about it, guys and gals. How can a woman ask a mans advice about where to carry or conceal a rearm? After all, our bodies are physically dierent. It would be like seeking advice from a man on the most comfortable bra. Things I have seen with saleswomen over the years have been a fascinating learning experience for me. When helping a woman purchase a gun, many men forget about simple dierences such as strength, size of hands and sometimes (more often than not) the simple fact they may not relate to a man as well. The second young lady I know who came into the rearms world is absolutely a solid wealth of knowledge, and learning more daily. Paige has been in the rearms industry professionally for about a year. She grew up in Vermont, hunting and shooting all her life, and relocated to Southwest Florida about three years ago. Paige told me a lot of the same things Amy did, and reinforced it by saying women can relate to types of guns based on your clothing and activities you do daily. She said women can relate information to other women without the fear of intimidation. The number of women who owned guns spiked to 23 percent in 2011, compared to 13 percent in a 2005 Gallup poll. While the NSSF hasnt released updated statistics yet, most think the rates will continue to rise. With that in mind, I expect to see more women joining the ranks of rearm professionals. Women who know their guns are a win-win-win for the customer, the retailers and the industry as a whole. To learn more about concealed carry for women, search the Web. There are so many dierent websites and resources out there. The trick is to nd the good ones (start with TheWellArmedWoman.com). Until next time stay safe, stay informed and happy shooting.Ryan Ingle has owned and operated Higher Power Outtters in Punta Gorda since 2011.

Page 12 October 16, 2014 Photo providedHes easy to spot in this photo, but out in the woods a squirrel can be a challenging opponent.If your squirrel experience is mostly with city park tree rats nibbling handouts from little old ladies, the idea of hunting squirrels probably seems like a strange one. Ill grant you that it wouldnt be very sporting to go gunning for those particular rodents. But a wild squirrel, by which I mean a squirrel that lives in the actual wild, is a totally dierent creature. Hunting them is a genuine challenge, and one that Ive always relished. The word squirrelly means nervous. And thats just what a wild squirrel is. When they know youre coming, they bark from a distance and then shut up and magically disappear as you get close. Add in wary, smart and superbly camouaged, and youve got an animal that though small makes a formidable opponent in a cat-and-mouse game. Hunting squirrels is very dierent from most other types of hunting because youre actively stalking your quarry. If youve spent any time walking in the woods, youve probably seen more than a few squirrels running though the tree canopy. It may seem to you that they would have been easy to shoot. Ha! I told you, theyre smart. Squirrels seem to recognize a dierence between a hiker and a hunter. Im not sure if they know what a rie is, or they see the way youre looking at them, or maybe its all just in my head. Mostly, its probably that hunted squirrels get highly mistrustful. After all, theyre on a lot of predators menus. Youre just another one. Stealth is your friend on a squirrel hunt. Some folks will laugh at you for putting on full camo to stalk squirrels. Let em. You can laugh at them when youre coming out of the woods with a full game bag. Dont walk into this with an its not real hunting attitude. It certainly is, and that kind of mentality will result in you ending your day with more frustration than squirrels to clean. Squirrels have good methods for avoiding you. Some of them can be defeated; some cannot. For example, one favorite trick of theirs is to skitter around to the other side of a tree trunk. If you try to follow them around, theyll move around too, resulting in the two of you running circles around the tree. Dizzying and marvelously unproductive. Try this instead: Toss a small stone or acorn at a target on the other side. Often as not, the noise will send the squirrel back to your side. Be ready when he gets there. On the other hand, if your intended target heads for a cabbage palm, best let him go. Even if you are able to get a kill shot, chances are you wont be able to retrieve the squirrel. Would you take a shot at a deer or turkey you knew you wouldnt be able to get to? Its a lousy and unsportsmanlike thing to do. Yes, I know it gets frustrating. But if you cant deal with the fact that the squirrel is sometimes going to win, maybe you should take up golf instead. Squirrels, as mentioned before, arent big. You wont be shooting them with your deer rie at least, not if you want to have anything left. Some hunters prefer a .410 shotgun. With a scattergun, its a lot easier to hit a squirrel on the run. But that ability comes at a price: Your delicious squirrel meat will be full of lead pellets. Thats unpleasant, and thats why I use a .22 rie. For quick follow-up shots, I go with a semi-automatic. Ive never found any special hunting ammo to be neces sary or even desirable. Hollow-point bullets tend to wreck these little guys, again ruining at least some of the meat. Unlike with most other game animals, the preferred shot is to the squirrels head. Its not a big target, but then again youre usually at 10 to 25 yards. Most body shots are fatal, but a head shot is instant and again, wont ruin any of the meat. Once Ive collected the squirrel, I stash it in my game bag. No prep is necessary at this point, provided youre going to be out in the woods for only an hour or two. If youre hunting longer than that, youll need to gut them and put them on ice. Cleaning a squirrel is pretty easy. Make a small incision across the skin right in the middle of the back. Insert your ngers into the hole and simply peel the skin o the front and back halves until you reach the feet. Then slice through the wrist and ankle joints and cut o the head and tail. Cut the squirrel open from the ribcage down and remove the guts. Then I split the squirrel into right and left halves. Now its ready for the pan or freezer. Male squirrels will be a little tougher than females, but theyre also larger. Where squirrel populations are dense, youll nd that perhaps 25 percent of what you harvest are bars castrated males. Older males will actually chew the testicles o younger ones to prevent mating competition. Scary, right? Thats nature, though, and it works to your benet because bars are both large and tender. In places where squirrel numbers are low, youll nd few or no bars. I usually prefer squirrels dusted in seasoned our and fried. If you nd the meat to be tough, you can try stewing them to soften em up. If youre used to boneless chicken breast, this isnt like that. Its more like eating a whole pansh, Youve got to learn to eat around the bones (and the pellets, if youre a shotgunner). But its worth it, because theres nothing quite like the avor of tree rat. Dont ever say it tastes like chicken. It tastes like squirrel. And I love it.Capt. Josh Greer is a fourth-generation Floridian, born and raised in South Florida.

The sun and moon, even when they are out of sight, exert forces wild creatures can feel. These forces aect when sh and other animals feed. Weather and tide also play a role, but expect sh to be more active during the major and minor solunar times. Do yourself a favor: Make time to enjoy our beautiful areas great shing now! Its now or winter. Im serious; now is the time to enjoy local shing. Snook, redsh, trout all are hungry now but will be moving into their winter patterns soon. Fall could last a while or y by in a brilliant ash. Minnows are easy to nd and plentiful; they will move o soon as it chills down. Most are still smaller than perfect, but very shable. Snook are moving inland, headed towards rivers and creeks, so dont expect to nd them in the same places day after day. Explore upstream, especially if the weather is changing. Redsh, however, are schooled up heading out into the Gulf joining up with spawning schools of 40-pound monsters. These schools are shy from intense pressure targeting them, but they still have to eat. Speckled trout are just as hungry, but they are due to switch to eating shrimp soon, as they do every year. If you cant get them to eat your minnows, try shrimp. Articial lures are perfect for all three species too. We even have a few tarpon, pompano and cobia cruising inside to surprise us frequently right now. Hire one of our great local shing guides and explore beautiful Charlotte Harbor, Pine Island Sound, and Lemon Bay; its worth every dollar you invest to speed up your learning curve. The Gulf of Mexico is already exploding with migratory sh action. Spanish and king mackerel, sharks, cobia, tripletail, tarpon and more are all feeding up as they travel south. This is the mack attack bite, action-packed with multiple species. We dont know how long it will last, but we know its going to chill down fast around Thanksgiving. We have a month or so to enjoy this opportunity; procrastinate and it will y by you. Check your calendars and make reservations with your preferred captains. No one knows what Mother Nature will deal us, so if theres an east wind, get out while you can. Dont miss those rare calm days. Most charter boats have some exibility right now, unlike in the springtime. Watch the weather and check the forecast; you may be able to make last-minute plans for your group to enjoy this hot bite. Red snapper, red grouper and amberjack are closed, but other snapper and gags are still open plenty of action and gourmet table fare. The kingsh, sharks and cobia are powerful pole-benders. They are fun, good eating, and make your Gulf trips work now. Your local tackle shop can help you rig to catch mackerel on lures and hardware. Spoons, jigs and plugs all produce, but do not mix these while trolling as they all work at varied speeds. Spoons should be trolled faster than lures. Jigs can be cast. Natural baits are great if you can capture and carry them. Its fun if you do own a boat to be your familys hero, catching your kids sh for dinner. Mackerel are the target species you dream of easy, abundant, and tasty if you ice them properly. Spring also oers excellent shing action, but we have many more boats on the water. Its OK to follow other boats here in the Gulf so long as you dont interfere with your mentors catching! Keep a comfortable distance away and dont run over the schools of sh or chase them. Like most sh, fresh is best for mackerel. You must ice sh immediately and eat them ASAP. Leave the skin on but remove the centerline pin bones just above the rib cage for boneless llets. The meat should be rm in texture and its scent should remind you of a clean ocean, not an old castnet. Mackerel can be smoked, fried or grilled as you desire. My favorite cooking method is broiling. Place clean dry llets on a pan covered with foil. Preheat your broiler to high; season sh to taste with Old Bay and Everglades seasonings. Then place em under the red hot broiler to sear. Remove as soon as they are about half-cooked with a thin crust. Time depends on how thick your sh is. Baste liberally with Dukes mayo to cover with a thin layer. Put them back into broiler and do not walk away! As soon as the mayo begins to bubble and start to show that beautiful golden brown, shut o the heat. Let sh remain in hot oven to allow juices to marry into esh. The skin holds moisture into meat. A delicious, healthy meal to share and enjoy. This works with most other sh also. I heard of good action o Sarasota and St. Pete. Last weekend and expect it to pick up here after our next north winds. Some Spanish are already around and a few kings. Lots of little tunny and tiny mackerel were around the Venice pier Sunday afternoon. Find time to enjoy the fall shing soon, because you cant expect it to wait for us.Capt.

Page 14 October 16, 2014 Photo provided A green heron keeps a sharp eye out for a meal while preening its feathers. Falls arrival brigs cooler weather and visitors from the north both human and feathered. Time to get out and see some birds! Our destination was Pinecraft Park in Sarasota. We met at the usual meeting place when traveling north the Home Depot parking lot in Venice. Our trip leader for Venice Area Birding Associations premier birding trip of the season was Deb Johnson, also known as Eagle-eye because of her ability to spot birds a mile away. It was quite foggy when we left Venice, and several of us remarked how dicult it would be spotting small warblers in leafed-out trees in the fog. That was cause for quite a few jokes. But by the time we arrived at Pinecraft, the fog had mostly lifted and was not too bad. We always head to the creek to see if any waders are feeding along the banks. The rst bird of the day was a great egret intent on catching a sh. Right behind was a little blue heron foraging in the muck. The group was down the creek a bit, but I couldnt leave to join them as I spotted something yellow y in and then vanish. I also saw a icker (very recognizable by its black bib) and a red-bellied woodpecker. I did not see the small yellow bird again. Oh, well thats the way it is with small warblers far up in the treetops. Soon the group all wandered down to the water where I had been birding and a good thing, because just then a green heron ew in and landed directly across from us. Also sighted were mottled ducks and common moorhens. A ock of nanday parakeets ew over head, which we heard chattering before seeing them. About 15 minutes in, Steve Freedman said that it was time for breakfast because wed seen enough birds. Of course, that was a joke we were just getting started on a two hour hike through Pinecraft. We all stopped to chat with an elderly Amish man who had come to the waters edge on his bike. He had his adorable little grandchild with him. He was quite curious about what birds we were sighting. After a bit of a chat and sharing some information about Pine craft, we headed out onto the trails. Deb knows the trails in Pinecraft very well. As we hiked through the woods, we heard quite a bit of birdsong. Identifying warblers as they it in and out of leafed-out trees is quite a dicult process. We dont see enough of the bird or see it for a decent amount of time, so many times we cant ID the bird. Walking quietly and listening to the calls is an important process when birding in the woods. We heard the ovenbird way before we spotted it. Oven birds are usually spotted on the ground or in the low limbs of trees. They are really neat birds with white spectacles. Well, the spectacles are eye rings which is a distinguishing feature of the ovenbird. Several tree swallows ew overhead followed by a small group of white ibis with one immature. We had the usual sightings of cardinals and mockingbirds, plus red-eyed vireos, a Tennessee warbler, a yellow-throated warbler and in the distance we heard a red-shouldered hawk. We stopped for a while to try to get some decent looks at a Carolina wren that was doing a lot of familiar calling. We also had good looks at a brown thrasher. There is always what birders call the trash bird of the day. It is really not a trashy bird it just means that we see a lot of them. This days trash bird was the very attractive female American redstart. The female of this species is yellow and black. It is just as attractive as the male, which is red and black, but we didnt see any male redstarts. Toward the end of the hike, I was o on a side trail spotting several blue jays when Deb spotted an incredibly well-cam ouaged barred owl nestled in a palm tree and preening. The owl seemed not to care that we all stood below staring at it, admiring this beautiful bird. Owls are always exciting to see no matter how often you see them. We also noted that we had seen a few hummingbirds traveling through, so its time to put out your humming bird feeders. And then, of course, we were o to nd a place for lunch. We had a wonderful day of birding in beautiful South west Florida. This was a great rst eld trip of the new birding year. Thank you to Deb Johnson for leading it. Wont you join us next time?

Page 15 October 16, 2014 The shop is lled with all sorts of basic shing necessities.Get your bait DowntownThe on-again, o-again tackle shop location at Punta Gordas Laishley Park Municipal Marina is once more occupied and this time, the new proprietors are planning to be in it for the long haul. Bobbie Leahey and her mom Sue opened Downtown Bait & Tackle Shop October 1, and so far theyre still enjoying it. Thats not very long, but considering the previous operator closed within weeks of opening, its a good sign. Were determined to make it work, says Bobbie. We know some others have tried and failed, but thats the past. Were focused on the future. So far, the shop is pretty low-key, but that will change in the coming weeks as windows signs get installed and trac at the boat ramp just a few feet away picks up with seasonal residents ocking back. Bobbie and Sue are ready for them. The walls are lined with tackle of all kinds, the shrimp tank and freezers are loaded with bait, and theres plenty of cold beer ready to go everything a sherman could want. The store is open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. Thats long hours for these two, but it makes good sense for them to be open when anglers are getting ready to go out on the water. Well open even earlier if theres a tournament or other event, said Bobbie. Theres not a lot of high-end gear in the shop, but Bobbie says thats by design. We want to keep things low cost for normal, everyday shermen, she says. Our prices are competitive with Walmarts. In addition to shing equipment, Downtown Bait also oers kayak rentals for as little as $30 a day, or rent by the hour. Both singles and tandems are available. Theyre also planning to oer paddleboards for rent in the coming months. This mother-daughter team is aware of the challenges in front of them, but they remain undaunted. Theyve been in Punta Gorda since 1986 and have been active in the community, so theyve got a lot of friends pulling for them. People want us to succeed, says Bobbie. Im thankful that we have a lot of support in this community. We paid our rent for a year in advance, she adds. Were looking to be here for the long haul. Downtown Bait & Tackle Shop is located at 120 Laishley Court in Punta Gorda. For more info, call 941-628-1019. The freezers are well-stocked with frozen bait.

Its a determination that we make when we rst see a person, and its such a basic classi cation that we do it without any conscious eort because, well, guys just look dierent from gals. Usually. However, there are some androgynous humans whose appearance blurs gender lines, making the determination more dicult. One of Saturday Night Lives more famous recurring skits involved Pat, a sexually ambiguous char acter. The other SNL characters went through all kinds of unsuccessful gyrations trying to determine whether Pat was male or female. Like humans, the sh we encounter are either males or females. But unlike humans, most sh species are dicult to sex. There are only a few species for which the gender is readily apparent. Most species of sh exhibit so little external dierence between the sexes that even trained biologists are forced to cut the animals open and conduct an examination of internal organs to determine gender. Of course, there are exceptions. For example, its easy to tell whether a shark or a ray is a male or a female by looking for claspers, prominent external sexual organs located between the pelvic ns on males. There are a few other species of sh for which adult males do dier in external appearance from adult females. Two good examples of this are dolphin (mahi-mahi) and hogsh. Big male dolphin, sometimes called bull dolphin, develop a large and very Boys and girls AROUND CHARLOTTE HARBOR CAPT.

Hogsh are similar: Adult males develop an oversized snout and huge, gaping mouth, while females do not. There are some species of sh for which the males and females look virtually identical, but for which you can make a pretty good guess on gender if you know a bit about their biology. For example, sometimes its possible to determine the sex of a sh by listening to it. While human females seem to be more talkative, its just the opposite with redsh. If youre handling a freshly caught red drum, you might get to hear the extremely low-pitched growling or drumming sound for which theyre named. If you do hear the drumming, then you know youve caught a male because the females are silent. If youre grouper shing and catch a gag, its almost certainly a female. How do we know this? Its because all gags start life as females, and only relatively few of the very largest individuals later switch sexes to become males. There are not many males and theyre typically found in relatively deep water, so most recre ational anglers do not encounter them. Its also possible to guess the sex of a snook, even though male and female snook are prac tically identical in external appearance. Since all snook start life as males, if you catch a tiny snook its likely to be a male. As snook grow larger many (though not all) of them eventu ally change sex and continue life as females, so if you catch a really big snook its most likely a female. Guessing the gender of a mid-sized snook is tricky because not all snook change sex at the same size or age. Male snook have been documented into the mid-30-inch size range, but most of that size are females. So, if you catch a 12-inch snook, its almost certainly a male. If you catch a 36-inch snook, its very likely a female, though there is a slim chance that it could be a male. In Charlotte Harbor, statistics show that a barely legal snook, 28 inches in overall length, has about a 50-50 chance of being male or female about the same male/female percentage as seen in the wearers of high heels and tight skirts on Duval Street in Key West.

Page 18 October 16, 2014 Page 18 October 16, 2014 Photo providedWhen the bites good, enjoy it while it lasts. On a hot biteWhen sh get grouped up, it can be one of the best things you will ever experience on the lake. If you can nd those groups and they are aggressively feeding well then, you just hit the lottery for freshwater shing. The hours that you have to put in on a specic lake to nd this scenario, however, can seem like an eternity. I was fortunate enough to hit a spot like this on my last trip out to practice for an upcoming tournament. We had thrown swimbaits over some very clean vegetation throughout the morning with no success. While we had sh swirling on the bait, none would actually take it. We had shed other portions of the lake during the remaining morning hours with similar results hits, but no real bites. I nally decided to run to a small line of cattails that I had seen while we were running around the lake. To make this even better, there was some scattered hydrilla out in front of the cattails so the bass had room to move in and out as they needed. We pulled out the worm rods and stayed back o the cattails a little bit, pitching at the edges or making short casts to get the bait back in some of the small holes that were formed on the edge of the cattails. This cattail line was only 25 to 30 yards long, and the rst half did not yield a single bite. But when we got to the second half, bass were hitting the bait as fast as I could drop it back in the water. It seemed like there were bass everywhere. There was only 3 feet of water on this edge, but the bass would grab the bait and move o before it even got close to the bottom. These sh were aggressive and there were a bunch of them in there a scene right from my dreams. The only sad part of the whole deal was that my lovely wife and shing partner couldnt get bit to save her life. I felt bad about that. They were so aggressive that I gured she would be catching them as often as I was. It was tough to not feel good about things, though, because I was nally able to locate some bass and get them to bite. But this little phenomenon brought up an interesting question: Why were these sh pounding my lures while those in other parts of the lake wouldnt bite at all? I wish I had the answer to that question, because it would save me a lot of time when I practice for tournaments. I looked at water clarity, wind, temperature, cloud cover and anything I could think of. Here is what I came up with. While the water may have been a little dingy, there was no light skim of green like what we had seen on other portions of the lake. The hydrilla out in front of the cattails was sparse, but very clean. When I pulled some up, it wasnt slimy at all it was very rm and green. The wind speed and direction stayed the same throughout the day, but the sun had come out when our sh started to bite. Earlier in the day it was completely over cast. The water temperature had stayed pretty consistent, but the one thing that we did see was much more baitsh activity at the surface where we caught those bass. We could see bass bumping the cattails obviously chasing down bait and feeding. The rst factors I listed appeared to be what caused the baitsh to be holding in this partic ular area. All of the bass we caught were fat. You could tell that they had been eating pretty well. It was a welcome sight for me because I have been struggling mightily to put bass of any size in the boat. Maybe this is the day I needed to get my shing back on track. We will nd out in less than 24 hours. By then, the tournament will be over and I hope to be holding a bag with some decent bass in it.

Page 19 October 16, 2014 Page 19 October 16, 2014 As the snowbirds start to stream down south for the winter, so do the snow birds. Here at Peace River Wildlife Center, we have noticed an increase in migrating avian species. We are starting to see wood storks, hawks and song birds that pass into and through Southwest Florida because of our mild winter weather. It is also hard to miss the longer lines at the grocery stores and increased trac on the roads as the seasonal residents return. Yes, all of our friends (people and birds) are heading back to town and unfortunately, sometimes they run into and over each other. That is where PRWC comes in. When an injured bird comes in, we rehabilitate it and try to get it back out into the wild as quickly as possible so that it can resume its migration or not miss breeding season. Many of our year round resident raptors great horned owls, eagles, etc. are getting ready to start building or repairing nests and breeding. But we cant rehab these injured birds until they are delivered into our capable hands. And that is where our heroes come in the rescuers. PRWC treats more than 2,000 birds, mammals and reptiles each year, and we care for more than 120 residents that cannot be released due to their injuries. With a paid sta of only three full-time people and six part-timers, we rely on hundreds of volunteers to keep our doors open, the habitats clean, and the donations rolling in to pay for food and medications for all of our patients and residents. When a call comes in regarding an injured animal, we rarely can spare anyone on duty to leave the facility for a rescue mission. Charlotte County animal control ocers help out whenever they can, but their primary duty is to domestic animals and public safety. Over the years, we have had many stalwart volunteer rescuers who were ready, willing and able to pick up an injured eagle, bobcat or snapping turtle, but now we nd ourselves relying on just a few individuals to pick up all of our injured animals. And that is where you come in. PRWC is looking for a few good men (or women). This coming Saturday, Oct. 18, PRWC will present a basic wildlife rescue class for anyone interested in learning the basics on how to handle injured wildlife to transport it to a licensed rehab facility. The class will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Riverside RV Resort Activities Center (9770 Kings Highway, Arcadia). That is less than 5 miles northeast of I-75 on Kings Highway. You will learn how to approach and contain injured wildlife while keeping both yourself and the animal safe. Sam and Bill will present hands-on training and handouts. Admission is free, and any donations will benet PRWC. Reservations are not necessary, but inter ested parties can call Sam at 406-690-8151 for more information and to conrm atten dance so enough equipment and supplies are available. Ideally we would love to have at least one person from each of the areas we serve Desoto, Charlotte, Lee and southern Sarasota counties. No experience is required. A love of nature and empathy for all of her creatures is manda tory. A strong sense of adventure and a weak sense of smell are highly recommended. Peace River Wildlife Center is a nonprot organization, dedicated to the care, preservation and protection of Charlotte Countys native wildlife since 1978. They are open seven days a week year-round, including holidays. Tours are oered from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. PRWC receives no government funding and relies entirely on private donations.

Page 23 October 16, 2014 Its a little too early to start shing for sheepshead from Southwest Floridas piers. But that doesnt mean its too early to start talking about them, especially after a certain state-record sh caught my eye. Dense concentrations of sheepshead dont haunt the area until the water tempera ture cools consistently to around 76 degrees, which is uncommon before Halloween and usually happens closer to Thanksgiving. Current temperatures in Charlotte Harbor are in the low 80s. But while I was walking back over the State Road 776 bridge in El Jobean after targeting snook on the seawall recently, I saw a guy leaning over the pier who appeared to be shing for sheepshead. I cant be certain, but he was using the classic sheepshead stance and shing right next to a piling. If he was shing for sheepshead, hes even more anxious than me, a fanatic angler who shes the bucktoothed porgies religiously from late fall until early spring. Couple that with an impressive sheepshead sighting on the Internet, and Im champing at the bit already to begin this seasons quest for sheepies. Theres a photo thats been making the rounds on Facebook of a new state record sheepshead caught in Delaware. The sh, caught on Sept. 29 by Dave Walker of Boothwyn, Pa., was a whopping 17 pounds, 1 ounce. That easily eclipses the Florida state record of 15.2 pounds caught near Homosassa. Through the power of the Internet, I was able to connect with Walker and ask him about his trophy. Walker was shing in the lower Delaware Bay targeting tautog on a mile-long rock wall 4 miles out at a depth of 15 feet. He said that while there are not too many sheepshead caught in the area that he was shing, this time of year there are a few caught which are usually over 10 pounds. Walker enticed the sheepie with a green crab using a Shimano Stradic 4000 reel and a light spinning rod, and he said it put up a very good ght and ran drag many times. I am very happy to have caught a state record, Walker wrote via Facebook. I have worked for 15 years on charter boats, as well as shing with my family since a very young age, and never dreamed of catching a state record. Walkers catch got me thinking about a state record of my own, but Ive got quite a ways to go. My biggest sheepshead to date is a 6-pounder caught on a mud crab at Placida in late March. Maybe Ill start by trying to beat that mark. And dont worry, the sheepshead will be here soon enough. Until next time, hook em up and ght em hard. Fish on, fellow anglers.Matt Stevens is an avid saltwater angler and an award-winning outdoor writer.

Page 24 October 16, 2014 ALL THOSE JELLIESWhy are there so many jellysh these days? Turns out their numbers are easily nudged up by any one of a number of factors adding structures, adding nutrients, removing a lot of sh, increasing the temperature. When multiple factors are in play at the same time, jellysh proliferate in prodigious numbers, according to a new video produced by the National Science Foundation and narrated by marine scientist Monty Graham. As any Gulf Coast resident knows, jellysh swarms are pretty common these days. From an airplane, they appear as pink aggregation after pink aggregation along the shore and can stretch for as far as 100 miles, Graham said. The aggregations are densely packed, he said. In the thickest patch, theres more jellysh than water, Graham said in the video. As many jellysh as you can squeeze into a cubic meter, thats what the density is easily 50 to 100 animals per cubic meter at their thickest.IM NOT AS THINK AS YOU DRUNK I AMA Key West commercial sherman failed in his attempt to dock a boat at a Stock Island sh house, then failed dockside sobriety tests Sept. 30, state marine ocers report. William D. Letrick, 58, was at the helm of a 25-foot open shing boat around 2:30 p.m. when it struck and damaged docked boats at the Stock Island Lobster Co., according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report. A witness described Letrick as staggering and stumbling, FWC Ocer Glen Way said in his report. While still aboard his boat, Letrick turned o his engine but had diculty doing so, Way wrote. He staggered a bit and claimed he was not quite sure how to turn the boats motor o. Once on shore, Letrick failed physical sobriety tests and refused to give a breath or blood sample. Letrick told ocers he was turning the boat toward the dock when it suddenly went forward, causing him to fall backwards and lose control of his vessel. One boat hit by Letrick, a 23-foot T-Craft, was damaged, said owner Arasay Gonzalez Rios. Information on possible damage to a second docked boat was not available.BANNER YEAR FOR TURTLE NESTSLoggerhead turtle nest numbers remained high in 2014 and leatherback turtle nesting reached a new record in the state, according to FWC research scientists. Sea turtles face many important threats at sea and on land, which need to be addressed for the recovery of these charismatic and endangered species, but the results of the 2014 nesting season in Florida are encouraging and provide a positive outlook for the future, said FWC research scientist Dr. Simona Ceriani. Loggerhead nest counts in 2014 were slightly higher than in 2013. Loggerhead nest numbers in Florida show a complex pattern: Nest counts have increased, then decreased, then increased again. Despite the variable pattern, the overall trend in this species nest numbers is positive. Although nesting at a much lower level than loggerheads, the nest counts for leatherback turtles reached a new record high in the state in 2014, showing a slight increase over the previous high in 2009. The trend in leatherback nesting shows an exponential increase over the last 26 years.THE BEST HABITAT GOINGOil platforms o the Southern California coast are some of the worlds most productive marine sh habitats, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The ndings could have important policy implications for the decommis sioning and construction of oil platforms, wind farms and other oshore structures. Given the hundreds of thousands of shes that sometimes live around these platforms, these results were not a complete surprise, said Milton Love, a research biologist with UC Santa Barbaras Marine Science Institute. Love and a team of marine biologists from Occidental College and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management are the rst to estimate rates of production for the entire community of shes associated with oil platforms. They found that the oil platforms tended to produce about 10 times more sh biomass (or weight) chiey various species of rocksh and lingcod than other more conventional marine habitats. According to the inves tigators, when compared to the sh production on natural rocky reefs at similar depths o the Southern California coast, the platforms on average produced more than 27 times as much sh.STUDY: FISH WILL MOVE NORTH AS OCEANS WARMWarming oceans will shift ocean sh populations away from the tropics and towards the poles, perhaps creating new sheries in Arctic waters, according to a study conducted by scientists at the University of British Columbia. The study considered several dier ent warming scenarios and found that under best-case conditions, sh populations would shift northward or southward by about 10 miles a decade. In the worstcase scenario where ocean temperatures rise 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100 sh populations would shift polewards by some 15 miles per decade. Not all sh will fare well in the new habitats they encounter, said William Cheung, one of the studys lead authors. He said for those that cannot, it may be because of the absence of specic spawning grounds or food items, or the occurrence of new predators. Alaska waters have already witnessed the presence of unusual sh species due in part to warming water temperatures.ELK FIGURE OUT WATER FOUNTAINSGrand Canyon ocials have reduced waste by banning disposable plastic water bottles and installing water stations for visitors. But a new problem has sprung up: Elk are helping themselves to water at the stations by lifting spring-loaded levers with their noses. Now, ocials plan to elk-proof the stations to outsmart the animals, conserve water and protect visitors from aggressive behavior by the animals. The elk dont always back down when visitors approach. Instead, they take a rm stance, particularly when protecting calves or during fall rutting season. The elk havent hurt anyone at the stations, but the animals have charged at wildlife biologists trying to disperse herds with as many as 20 elk by staring them down and shooting them with paintball and water guns, wildlife biologist Brandon Holton said. Some move, some dont, he said. Sometimes when you shoot them with water guns, they open their mouth.HELP ME, IM IMPORTANTThe Coast Guard cutter tuned in to a faint distress signal from a sinking pleasure craft.
